Analysis: A shooting in Bat Yam amid the wave of terror

The last moments of Shachar Maman’s life could have played out much different.

Carrying two knives, running toward a wounded man and a police officer, he was cut down on Saturday with multiple shots to the upper body by a police officer who the Tel Aviv District Police said feared for his life and that of the wounded man he was attending to.

According to Tel Aviv police, the officer ordered Maman to drop the knives, and when he didn’t, the officer opened fire.
