Police investigators on Sunday arrested a 24-year-old man suspected of involvement in the murder of Moshe Elbaz in Givat Shmuel on Saturday.

Police requested that Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court extend the suspect's remand.

Elbaz, 28, was shot on Saturday evening and later died of his wounds at Sheba Hospital Tel Hashomer.

Police suspect the murder may have been revenge for an incident that happened exactly ten years earlier in the exact location in which Elbaz was shot. Elbaz stabbed Sharon Kalifa to death at the same location in Givat Shmuel, a crime he served 15 months for on manslaughter charges.
