Shots Fired at Manchester Yeshiva

Police are investigating a pre-dawn shooting, Sunday, at the Sha'arei Torah yeshiva in Manchester, England. Students at the yeshiva went down to the street around 3:00 a.m. to ask the driver of a car to stop honking his horn. Moments later, another car passed and shots were heard in the background, sending the students fleeing to the yeshiva.

Police who arrived at the scene discovered 22 milimeter shells. It was not immediately clear if the incident was an anti-Semitic crime or part of fight between gangs.
