Police had to wait for the men to sober up and began questioning them only on Saturday.

The Beersheba Magistrate’s Court extended the custody of both men by a week on Saturday night.

Meanwhile, in a separate deadly incident, police are continuing to investigate the shooting death of a 25-year-old man in Ashdod.

The gunshot victim, David Shicargi, was struck by bullets fired by a 17-year-old youth after the two entered into a physical confrontation over the terms of the purchase of a moped, police suspect.

The shooter told police he felt threatened by Shicargi, who arrived at his home with a second man, to allegedly demand a fee for the purchase.

The suspect’s custody was extended by the Beersheba Magistrate’s Court by a week.
