Turkey Shooting: British Family 'Shocked'
The family of three British people shot, including one fatally, in Turkey have said they were "lovely people who would never harm anybody".
Catherine Anne Bury, who was known as Anne, died after she was attacked at the family villa allegedly by her gardener.
Her son Alex, 24, and mother Cecilia, who is in her 80s, were injured in the shooting in the resort of Dalyan on Monday.
The family of 56-year-old Ms Bury thanked people for their "warm wishes and condolences at this very sad time".
They added: "Although our family are still deeply shocked and grieving for Anne, we are pleased to say that both Anne's mother and son are recovering from their injuries.
"Both have been given wonderful care, treatment and support by hospital and consulate staff and many other local people."
Mr Bury has described how he pleaded with the alleged gunman Veli Acar to stop the attack, trying to reason with him before he opened fire on his mother.
Speaking from his bed in Mugla University Hospital, Mr Bury told The Times he recognised the gunman as Acar, their gardener who was said to have been in a relationship with his mother.
Acar had apparently threatened the family earlier that weekend, but was later released by the police and returned with a pump-action shotgun to the Bury's villa.
Mr Bury, who was shot in the leg, said: "I tried to reason with him. I told him it didn't have to be this way.
"He lifted the gun to his shoulder and gestured for me to go through to my mother and grandmother's room. They had heard me talking and had locked themselves in the room."
Acar is alleged to have gunned down Ms Bury as she cowered in the villa bathroom.
The family added: "It appears that the person that Anne employed as a general gardener/handyman, to look after her holiday villas, has committed this terrible crime.
"We cannot comprehend the mentality of somebody who would do this to three lovely people who would never harm anybody.
"We would like once again to thank everyone for their kindness and offers of help - they are a great source of strength to us."
The Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism confirmed the death of Ms Bury, who lived in the North Yorkshire village of Swainby.
Ms Bury, who trained as a midwife, had been working for an oil company in Dubai in a health role.
Her son worked at a North Yorkshire hotel, the Cleveland Tontine, after taking a year out of university, but is hoping to restart his studies in medicine.
Ms Bury's mother has been discharged after treatment.
Acar is said to have given himself up after the shooting and is due in court.
