Erdogan Guzel was shot whilst sitting outside his bakery.

He was shot in a drive by shooting along with another woman at 5.45pm on 10 July 2015 and died at the scene at about 7pm. The other person shot was a 51-year-old woman who had been out shopping with her daughter, but she recovered from her injuries.
