Two people are wounded – one of them critically – in what police describe as a “violent incident and shooting” in Jerusalem.

Police say officers were called to the scene of the shooting in the city’s German Colony neighborhood and that they are looking into the matter.

There is no immediate word from police on a suspected motive, though Hebrew media reports say it was a “criminal” incident and not terror-related.

The Magen David Adom ambulance service says its paramedics are treating the two men, and trying to resuscitate one of them, a man of around 30 who suffered a gunshot wound. He was taken to Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center.

The other man, whose condition wasn’t specified, left the scene on his own, according to MDA, which also did not say how he was wounded.
