A local resident of Sheikh Zowied, a city in the North Sinai province, was killed Thursday in a shooting incident.
Eyewitnesses said police forces stationed atop Sheikh Zowied Police Station fired at a passer-by.
A medical source told Anadolu Agency that Mustafa Nasr, 61, died while being taken to the Sheikh Zowied Hospital.
"Security authorities have refused to register his death," added the source.
Security authorities did not confirm or deny the report until the filing of this story.
"Police forces fire warning shots every now and then in the vicinity of Sheikh Zowied Police Station fearing possible attacks," a security source told AA.
"Sometimes mistakes happen."
Local residents told AA one person was killed and another injured late last month while passing through Sheikh Zowied Square because of the police warning shots.
