At least 39 people have been killed and more wounded in a New Year’s Eve attack on a nightclub in Istanbul, Turkey, according to multiple news sources.

Istanbul Gov. Vasip Sahin has been quoted as describing the incident as “a terror attack.” He also stated the attack was carried out by a lone gunman.

The Reina nightclub, located in the Besiktas neighborhood of Istanbul, was filled with several hundred people celebrating the new year when the gunman opened fire.

Istanbul has seen a number of notable terrorist attacks this year, including several bombings. The bombing at Ataturk Airport June 28, 2016, was the deadliest. About 45 people were killed in that attack.

Nightclubs have also become more frequent targets of terrorist attacks. In June 2016, 49 people were killed in the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, and 89 people were killed in the Bataclan Theater Nov. 13, 2015, as part of the coordinated terrorist attacks in Paris.
