The Bury family have released the following statement:
A man from North Yorkshire whose mother was shot and killed in Turkey says he tried to reason with the gunman during the attack.
Catherine Anne Bury, 56, was killed in the incident at the fishing village of Dalyan on Saturday. Alex Bury, 24, and his grandmother, Cecila, 87, needed hospital treatment.
The former employer of Alex Bury, the son of Catherine Bury, who was killed during a shooting in Turkey has released a statement.
A local gardener is said to have admitted in a court appearance that he was responsible for the death of Anne Bury, who was shot dead while on holiday in Turkey.
Veli Acar claimed that the couple had been in a relationship and he was spurred on by jealousy having seen Ms Bury with another man.
It is important to stress at this point that this has not been commented on by anybody close to the family.
There is also a lesser sentence in Turkey if somebody is found to be responsible for a crime of passion.
According to Anne Bury's son Alex, it was around 5am when he awoke to see a man holding a gun in his bedroom.
He tried to explain that there was a way to move forward without anybody being injured but at that point the man left the room and went in pursuit of his mother.
She is said to have run up flights of stairs and lock herself into a bathroom but shots were fired through that bathroom door and she was killed.
We're told the alleged killer flew into a jealous rage when he saw Mrs Bury with another man but it is important to remember that in Turkey offences viewed as crimes of passion are likely to be punished with shorter sentences and these are the words of a defendant due in court today.
