Police say the suspect in Jerusalem was holding a suspicious object and wielding it like a knife while rushing at officers and shouting “Allahu Akbar” at them, leading them to shoot him.

He was taken to a hospital in serious condition.

Police do not say what the man was actually holding, though it seems it was not, in fact, a knife.
