Man shot at Jerusalem’s Mahane Yehuda market during dispute

A feud between a green grocer and bar owner at Jerusalem’s Mahaneh Yehuda market escalated into violence Friday when the grocer’s son, a soldier, allegedly shot the bar owner in the leg after the latter attempted to seize his gun.

Despite initial reports that the shooting was terrorist-related, police spokeswoman Luba Samri said the altercation at the market, popularly known as “the shuk,” was a criminal matter and that an investigation has been opened.

The confrontation was the result of a longstanding dispute between the 20-year-old soldier’s unidentified grocer father and the 25-year-old bar owner, The Jerusalem Post’s sister publication Ma’ariv reported.
