Border Police officers are seen shooting the terrorist and neutralizing him.

According to police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld the rampage began at 12:30 pm at the Shimon Hatsadik light rail stop outside of Sheik Jarrah.

"The terrorist hit four people, killing a Border Police officer," said Rosenfeld as he pointed to a pool of blood and downed light pole.

He then drove 500 meters up the road to the intersection where a separate terrorist attack took place over the summer, hitting 10 others, he said.

"The terrorist then fled the van and attempted to attack innocent men, women and children with a crow bar, but was shot and killed by a police officer," he said. "14 victims were rushed to area hospitals for treatment."

As hundreds of haredi residents surrounded the crime scene, Jerusalem mayor Nir Barkat spoke with witnesses.

"This is not an easy day for the city of Jerusalem," he said. "This is part of Arab incitement and we will not let this continue to happen. Our hearts are crying and we wish people that were hurt to be in good condition."

Barkat continued, "On the other hand, we are very tough and we will move on with our lives -- we will continue t build here and this will toughen us up."
