A 20-year-old was killed Monday night in a pizzeria in the northern Israeli town of Nesher in what police said was a holdup gone wrong.
Officers were searching for the shooters, who fled on foot.
The man, who worked as a pizza delivery guy, was shot in the upper body and critically injured. He was taken to Haifa’s Rambam Medical Center, but doctors were unable to save him.
“The suspects arrived when the workers were alone. One of them shot and injured one of the workers,” a police spokesperson said.
“We saw a young man about 20 years old who was unconscious, with a bleeding wound in his upper body,” said Aviad Lasri, a paramedic with the Magen David Adom emergency service who treated the victim. “We gave him first aid and rushed him to hospital in critical condition while performing CPR.”
Police have identified the victim as local man Daniel Heikin, 19.
Nesher is a small town near Haifa.
Shortly before the incident there, MDA medics treated a man who was seriously wounded in a shooting in Kfar Saba, north of Tel Aviv.
Earlier in the evening a 32-year-old woman was moderately injured in a shooting in Jaffa.
