A 22-year-old man was killed Friday evening in a shooting in Kalansawe in the Sharon region.

Unknown assailants shot the man from a passing vehicle and fled the scene.

Another boy, approximately 15 years old, was moderately injured in the same shooting. He was together with the man who died, and police suspected the two were shot from a car that was following them, saying the attackers opened fire at medium range. The boy managed to leap to the floor, thereby saving his life. The killers apparently believed he was critically injured and therefore did not shoot at him anymore.

MDA staff arrived at the scene and pronounced the 22 year old dead. The second casualty was taken to Kfar Saba's Meir Medical Center, where he received medical treatment. Police sent security forces to guard the hospital, for fear that the perpetrators might try to harm the youth while there.

Police were searching for the murderers.
