An Israeli was murdered in Los Angeles this week, allegedly by an acquaintance to whom he had recently loaned money.
Israel Kostan had moved to the US about three months ago, Channel 13 news reported Friday. He reportedly loaned around $700,000 to an Israeli acquaintance, whose identity was not given.
The two subsequently got into a fight over the money, the report said, and the suspect shot Kostan four times. The suspect is currently being held by the LAPD.
Kostan and his wife had only a month ago welcomed their first son.
