Shot fired in air during Jerusalem brawl between Jews, Arabs

A brawl breaks out between Jews and Arabs at the A-Tur Junction just north of the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, during which someone fired a gun into the air.

Police say officers who arrived at the scene were pelted with rocks and “were forced to use means” while arresting two suspects on suspicion of assault and rock-throwing. Police did not specify which of the brawlers threw the rocks.

The person who fired the gun is also detained for questioning.
