In 30,000 square feet in a former IRS building on Mendenhall, Ali Gumus and Muhammet Turkay run a charter school that likely has more Turkish employees than any school in the city.
So, was this just another case of a Memphis teenager bringing a gun to school or something more sinister?
A Charter School Watchdog group found pictures online from a Gulen teacher's Facebook page. The teacher, Ali Oksuzer is posing with a gun in one picture then alongside another teacher, Alisher Matkulov, who is pointing a gun at Ali's head. There are also pictures of students brandishing guns.
