This is beyond devastating! Just when we thought we were kissing the hard times of 2016 goodbye, another heartbreaking incident pops up on the news. The night of Dec. 31 started out as a simple celebration for a group of partygoers who were dancing the night away at Reina nightclub in Istanbul. The drinks were flowing and the people were dancing until suddenly, a mysterious shooter open fired in the middle of the venue.
The shooting, which is said to be a “terror attack,” left 38 people dead and injured up to 40. Local news stations immediately rushed over to the club, capturing the horrified faces of those who were simply looking to have a good time in the last minutes of 2016. As the story is still developing, we, nor the police, know the name, gender, or race of the shooter. So far ISIS has not claimed responsibility for the attack.
