The man who suffered a fatal gunshot wound to the head, Thursday evening in Holon, was a 29-year-old Yafo (Jaffa) resident with a police record who was sitting in a car on Highway 20 near Wolfson Hospital. A man about 50 years of age who was also in the car suffered moderate wounds to the upper part of his body. A passerby apparently was struck by the victim's car and was shot in the stomach.
Dozens of police cars were sent to the scene to search for the vehicle in which the assailants fled. Heavy congestion was reported in the hospital area.
