AT LEAST two people have been injured in a shooting at a mosque in Istanbul, according to Turkish media reports.

Just hours after a gunman opened fire at a nightclub in the Turkish capital, gunfire was reported at the Hasan Pasha Mosque on Monday, Turkish Dogan News Agency (DHA) said.

The attacker reportedly fired a pump-action shotgun at worshippers gathered for prayer.

IB Times reports the shooting was due to a family dispute and was not politically motivated.

The gunman is reportedly related to the victims and has now been detained.

The attack comes as Turkish police hunt a gunman who killed at least 39 people and injured dozens more at the Reina nightclub in Istanbul, where revellers were celebrating the New Year.
