The name of the second victim in the suspected murder-suicide shooting that occurred in Tel Aviv's Montefiore neighborhood Wednesday night has been released.
Eliyahu Averman, 19, from Jerusalem was one of two men whose bodies were found with gunshot wounds in a car that crashed into a bench in the neighborhood, in what police say could be the deadly result of a quarrel between gay partners.
The other victim, Ohad Rozeberg, 31, was a resident of Rishon Lezion.
Police received a report of a car striking a sidewalk bench on the corners of Rehov Gershon Shatz and Natan Yalin Mor , and dispatched patrol officers to the scene.
"Officers from the Yiftah station found two gunshot victims inside the vehicle," a Tel Aviv police spokeswoman told The Jerusalem Post
Police suspect one man shot the other and then himself after a dispute.
"According to our initial checks, this could be the result of a dispute
among partners," a police source said.
MDA rushed one man to the Ichilov Medical Center in Tel Aviv, who died
of his injures on the way. The second man was declared dead on the scene
after paramedics failed to revive him.
