Israel Police officers shot a man after he aimed an M-16 rifle at them when police ordered him to stop his vehicle in Ein Mahil in northern Israel on Wednesday morning.
Police arrived at the scene after receiving reports of a shooting in Ein Mahil and identified two suspects riding a scooter.
The suspects refused to respond to orders by police to stop the vehicle and attempted to flee the scene, colliding with a police car.
During the chase, one of the suspects aimed an M-16 rifle at the police officers, who responded by firing at the suspect, moderately injuring him. The two suspects were arrested.
