This is the moment a spa manager fires his gun outside a five-star hotel in a British tourist hotspot after reportedly shooting three hotel bosses iin a row over employing foreign workers without the correct work permits.

The incident took place at an unnamed five-star hotel in the resort town of Bodrum in the south-western Turkish province of Mugla when the spa manager, identified as Huseyin O., opened fire during a meeting with bosses, according to local media.

Reports said that the suspect was warned about employing foreign workers without working permits in the hotel’s spa.

However, Huseyin continued to employ foreign workers and when things came to a head during a meeting with bosses, he pulled out a gun and first shot the security manager Onur Pelit in his calf, according to local media.

He then allegedly shot the hotel’s deputy manager Fikret Dinler, also in the calf.

Afterwards, he pointed his gun at the chest of general manager Melih Alemdar, but the firearm jammed, according to reports.

Alemdar told the suspect to lower his weapon and in that moment, Huseyin allegedly shot his leg.

As seen in the footage, Huseyin then went outside and fired his gun several more times before eventually being disarmed by a security guard.

Reports said that he was subsequently arrested by the police 100 metres from the hotel entrance.

The three victims were taken to nearby hospitals and Pelit has since been released while the other managers are still receiving treatment, although they are reportedly in a stable condition.

The police investigation is ongoing.
