Jerusalem Police on Friday discovered two bullets which had been fired at the capital’s Pisgat Ze’ev neighborhood earlier in the day, apparently by gunmen in the East Jerusalem Palestinian refugee camp of Shuafat.

No injuries were reported in the shooting.

One of the bullets was found in the back seat of a car after it ripped through the vehicle’s windshield, while the other was located in the yard of an apartment building, Israel Radio reported.

Police launched an investigation into the incident, one of several such shootings to take place in recent weeks.

Last month, a 20-year-old resident of the Shuafat refugee camp who was suspected of firing at homes in Pisgat Ze’ev was shot and seriously wounded by Border Police forces that had been dispatched nearby. The suspected gunman was evacuated by a Red Crescent ambulance to Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital in Jerusalem, where he underwent emergency surgery.

Police said they were still searching for other suspects involved in the shootings at Pisgat Ze’ev residences.
