The results revealed that a 60-year-old man, Ibrahim Bilgen, was shot four times in the temple, chest, hip and back.
A 19-year-old, named as Fulkan Dogan, who also has US citizenship, was shot five times from less than 45cm, in the face, in the back of the head, twice in the leg and once in the back.
