One person attending a funeral procession has been seriously injured after being shot during clashes between police and a group of demonstrators in Istanbul’s Okmeydanı neighborhood on May 22.

Security camera footage has emerged showing the moment when the mourner, who was standing with a group of others in front of a cemevi, an Alevi place of worship, fell on the floor after being shot in the head.

The victim, identified as Uğur Kurt, can then be seen being attended to by those around him.

Police reportedly used live ammunition after a group of protesters set alight an armored vehicle. Photos showing police officers holding firearms circulated on social media, and Istanbul Governor Hüseyin Avni Mutlu also confirmed that guns had been used during the clashes, vowing to investigate the incident.

Kurt has been rushed to the hospital and remains in a critical condition.
