A dispute over a money loan resulted in gunshots and an injury at a currency exchange store on Tel Aviv's Frishman Street on Wednesday.

Police said a 60-year-old man who borrowed cash from the store's owner entered the premises and became involved in a verbal confrontation.

The 60-year-old then brandished a firearm and fired shots, moderately injuring the 40-year-old owner in his hand. During the confrontation, the shooter was also lightly injured.

Paramedics evacuated both men to the Ichilov Medical Center for treatment.
