A 30-year-old resident of Kalansawa was shot dead in Tira on Saturday during a brawl between residents of the two Arab villages which police suspect erupted over a traffic-related argument. Another person who was critically hurt when he was shot in the head died overnight Saturday, Israel Radio reported. One other person was seriously wounded and another sustained moderate wounds in the afternoon incident. An initial investigation found that the passengers of two cars - one from each village - were fighting over who had the right of way in a narrow passageway. The shooter fled from the scene and police were conducting searches for him.
