Man killed in drive-by shooting in Jaffa

November 16, 2013 13:47

A 30-year-old man was gunned down in broad daylight in Jaffa on Saturday morning, on one of the busiest street corners in the city.

The man was standing outside a kiosk on the corner of Yehuda Hayamit and Albert Kiosso streets when someone in a passing car opened fire, hitting him in the head. The man was rushed from the scene by Magen David Adom paramedics to Wolfson Hospital in Holon, where he died of his wounds.

Tel Aviv Police said the man has no criminal record and is not known for being involved in any criminal activities. They added that they don't believe it was a case of mistaken identity, rather, the man was gunned down as part of a family dispute not at all related to organized crime.

No suspects have yet been arrested in the shooting.
