Ramle police officer Dep.-Cmdr. Shmulik Rosenthal told Israel Radio on Thursday morning that he believes a 17-year-old youth who was critically wounded in a drive-by shooting incident in the city on Wednesday night was not the assailants' target. The youth, who did not have a criminal record, was accidentally caught up in the incident only because he happened to be "in the wrong place at the wrong time," Rosenthal told the radio station. The police officer said that a 36-year-old man, who was moderately hurt in the shooting, was the target of the apparent underworld assassination attempt. The moderately wounded man has a criminal record of drug-related and violent offenses, he added.
