Turkish man shot dead in Denmark

COPENHAGEN, Denmark - A 21-year old Turkish man was shot dead by unknown assailants while getting in his car in Danish capital Copenhagen on Monday.

The victim, Ozan Ozcan, died on the way to the hospital due to a gunshot wound in the head. 

Danish security officers said the victim was a member of a gang composed of migrants, but added that they did not know whether this was relevant to the murder. 

The police found a cartridge case at the scene of the crime. 

Ozcan's family said the boy confirmed his ties to a gang in the past, but mentioned he had had no contact with the group for a while.

"He was making preparations for a wedding and was on his way to pay the fee for the venue, the family added. If he were still alive, he would have gotten married next week."
