In the early evening police received a call from witnesses who reported hearing a blast of some sort from an elevator upstairs in a building in the industrial district in Kiryat Haim. Police who arrived found a man shot to death in the elevator, with no firearm inside the lift. The man was the owner of a local business with no police record.
Not long after the body was discovered, police were called to a parking lot in nearby Kiryat Atta, where they found a man shot to death inside his vehicle. Police are examining the possibility that the man found in the car shot the first man in the elevator and then took his own life shortly thereafter.
Police have tasked the Coastal Region’s branch of the YAMAR investigative unit with the case.
Also in the Krayot, two bodies were found in an apartment on Varburg Boulevard in Kiryat Shmuel, but no further details were available at press time.
