Police opened a murder investigation on Wednesday after a 57-year-old school teacher was found shot to death in Kfar Qassam next to a cemetery in the city late Tuesday night.

Gunshots were reported around 10:30 pm and the shooting victim, local resident Omar Sarsur, was rushed to Petach Tikvah's Beilinson Hospital, where he died shortly thereafter.

Police said Sarsur had no criminal record and once worked as a Hebrew teacher in the Arab city in the Sharon region. The investigation has been handed over to the central branch of the special YAMAR investigative unit.
