Two men were shot dead Sunday in a Jerusalem apartment as a result of a feud over a debt, police said. The assailant fled the scene, but was nabbed by police shortly after the early evening attack in an apartment in the city's Katamon neighborhood. The two victims, in their 30s and 50s, were pronounced dead on the scene by Magen David Adom paramedics. Police said that the attacker entered the flat, shot the two men at close range and then attempted to flee, but was intercepted. He was arrested by an elite police unit summoned to the scene by neighbors who heard gunshots. The suspect, in his 20s, was caught just outside the third-floor apartment with his gun in hand, police said. He has a previous police record for drug-related offenses. Both the suspect and his victims worked for a security company
