By    |   Wednesday, 20 May 2015 06:09 AM

In what would be akin to shooting an "American Idol" contestant in the United States, Mutlu Kaya, a 19-year-old Kurd who is a Turkish talent show singer, was shot in the head through a window of her house. She was reported to be in critical condition.

Kaya gained national attention in Turkey in a popular song contest and had been mentored by Sibel Can, a well-known Turkish folk singer, reported The Associated Press.




Turkish authorities have charged an ex-boyfriend in the shooting,  according to Turkey's state-run Anadolu Agency.

Veysel E., was detained along with two others, who were later released. He is charged with attempted murder.

Kaya had reportedly received death threats after performing in the contest.

On Instagram, Can shared a picture of Kaya.

"My beautiful girl Mutlu, how could they hurt you? I am very sad," she commented.
