Police probe mistaken identity shooting of Jew thought to be a Palestinian

The security spot check of a Jewish man behaving erratically outside the capital’s downtown central bus station late Wednesday night turned into a deadly shooting when the suspect, believed to be an Arab terrorist, fought two IDF soldiers and reached for one of their guns.

According to police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld, at approximately 11:30 p.m. the unidentified man drew the attention of the soldiers upon exiting an Egged bus across the street from the central bus station.

“He was acting very suspiciously, and two IDF soldiers patrolling the area as part of Jerusalem’s heightened security suspected he may be a terrorist and asked him to present his identification, but the man said he refused to show it,” Rosenfeld said on Thursday morning.
