Hai Ben-Shimon, 24, was stabbed to death outside of his home in Ness Ziona early on Saturday following a dispute with other young men.

Ben-Shimon was taken to Assaf Harofe Medical Center in Tzrifin, but died en route.

Police believe the stabbing resulted from a dispute among criminals. Ben-Shimon had served time in prison for property theft and fraud.

Senior commanders from the Rishon Lezion police station and the Shfela police sub-district arrived following the stabbing and arrested six people on suspicion of being linked to the murder. The investigation is being headed by the Central District’s Central Unit.

Ben-Shimon’s family said he was planning on marrying his girlfriend soon. She was questioned by police as a witness to the slaying.

Meanwhile, in Lod, a drunken man arrived at a taxi office at approximately 1:30 a.m. and ordered a cab to Tel Aviv. An argument broke out between the passenger and driver, resulting in the driver ejecting the man from the vehicle. The passenger then pulled out a firearm and fired several shots at the car.

Police arrested a 30-year-old suspect, and identified three bullet holes in the taxi.

In Haifa, a 61-year-old was stabbed in leg in what police are describing as a feud between families. He was rushed to Rambam Medical Center with stab wound. “We plan on making arrests in this investigation,” a Haifa police spokesman said.
