Police have asked to send incoming security forces to the Gush Dan region, outside of Tel Aviv, as they search for the Tel Aviv shooter.

Security forces will set up 100 roadblocks around Tel Aviv, the Kan public broadcaster reports.

Around three hours have elapsed since the attack in central Tel Aviv and the shooter is still at large.

Troops and police have flooded to the area of the attack, with loaded weapons in hand, in a shocking scene for the coastal city reminiscent of the Second Intifada in the early to mid 2000s.
