    According to the newspaper Cumhuriyet, a 16-year-old schoolboy, who had been skipping classes, had an argument with his teacher that led to the latter being shot in the legs.

    A high school senior from the city of Afyonkarahisar in western Turkey fired at the teacher with a pistol, which he allegedly brought to school in a guitar case, Cumhuriyet reports. The reason for the incident, however, is unknown.

    Following the shooting, school administrators who heard the shooting called the police and medics.
