A security guard for a night club in Tel Aviv was killed early Saturday morning when he was shot by gunmen in a passing car as he made his way home from work.
The victim has been named by police as Alexander Pozbedetzky.
A taxi driver and another security guard were moderately wounded in the attack. Both of the wounded managed to get to Ichilov Hospital, in the city.
Backed up by a helicopter, police scoured the area in search of the suspects, but by mid-Saturday had failed to locate them.
According to an initial police investigation, the two guards had been sharing a taxi home when they were sprayed by bullets. The cab driver continued driving until he reached the hospital.
