Lod man shot dead, becoming 2nd gunfire victim today in Arab community

A 43-year-old man has been shot dead in Lod, becoming the second homicide victim in the Arab community today after a four-year-old boy was killed by a bullet in the northern village of Bir al-Maksur.

Hebrew media says the Lod incident appears to be part of a dispute between criminal gangs.

The victim was taken in critical condition to the Shamir Medical Center, where medics pronounced him dead.

Police are searching for suspects and collecting evidence at the scene, the reports say.
