The suspect is a member of the East Turkestan branch of ISIS, according to Turkish media reports.
Turkish intelligence forces are said to be closing in on the unnamed suspect who allegedly ‘screamed Allahu Akbar’ as he shot at revellers celebrating the New Year inside Reina nightclub.
The man is described as being from East Turkestan, Afghanistan or Chechnya, but authorities still do not know his name or precise nationality.
Some have blamed the attack on Islamic State and others said Kurdish militants were involved, but as yet, no one has claimed responsibility.
