Cop in Hapoel shooting to be tried for fraud

The police officer who fatally shot a young man last week while protecting a Jewish fan is to go to trial in June on fraud and other charges in a separate case, judicial officials said. Antoine Granomort killed one man and wounded another while under attack on November 23 from supporters shouting racist and anti-Semitic insults as he tried to protect a young Jewish man after a UEFA match between Paris Saint-Germain and Hapoel Tel Aviv. A judicial investigation has been opened, but prosecutor Jean-Claude Marin has said that Granomort, a transport police officer, likely fired his gun in self-defense because up to 100 people went after him.
