The suspect was reportedly staying in a house that belongs to his friend from Kyrgyzstan, who has also been detained.

The suspect had gunned down 39 people on January 1 at an elite Turkish nightclub. The Islamic State group had later claimed responsibility for the massacre and said that it was in reprisal for the Turkish military operations in northern Syria.
