Police Commissioner Insp.-Gen. David Cohen has warned against "tainting sectors and populations with suspicions" regarding Saturday night's murderous shooting spree at a support center for gay teenagers, which claimed two lives. "This is a despicable and cruel murder. A most professional unit has been tasked with solving it," Cohen added. "The Israel Police sees the investigation of this incident as being of the utmost importance for Tel Aviv police, and all means needed to solve the murders will be allocated," he said. A media ban in place on details of the investigation was designed to allow the Tel Aviv district police's elite Central Unit to "collect evidence and reach the suspect," Cohen stressed. He made the comments during a closed-door meeting with Tel Aviv police chief Cmdr. Shahar Ayalon and Central Unit detectives.
