An Eritrean refugee who was shot by a security guard, then beaten by an angry mob in a gruesome terror attack Sunday died of his wounds Monday morning, according to Soroka University Medical Center.

Mila Binsamo, 26, succumbed to his gun shot wound after a terrorist armed with a pistol and a knife stormed the Beersheba Central Bus Station on Sunday night, killing IDF soldier Sergeant Omri Levy, then  snatching his rifle and shooting and wounding at least 10 Israelis before being shot dead by police.

During the attack, armed security personnel mistook an Binsamo for a second terrorist and opened fire, wounding him in the lower body. The man was then set upon by a mob that mistook him for a terrorist, beating him severely and leaving him in serious condition.
