A Border Police officer is suspected of shooting his friend to death and then taking his own life inside a residential building in Petah Tikvah on Wednesday night.
Police said they arrived at the murder scene on Yehoshua Ben Nun Street in the city after receiving a call from a civilian who reported hearing gunshots. They said they have yet to determine a motive for the shooting.
Magen David Adom paramedic Roi Engel said that just before 6p.m. they received a call about two men lying unconscious inside a building in the city. When they arrived they found two men – both Ethiopian Israelis in their thirties – already deceased, and ruled both of them dead at the scene.
