Remand Extended in Shabbat Shooting

An Akko Court extended by four days, Sunday, the remand of a man suspected of firing the shots that resulted in the serious facial wounds of a 14-year-old Akko girl on Shabbat.

The girl, whose family lives on the third floor of a building on Herzl Street, apparently heard shots in the pre-dawn hours and went out on her porch, where she was hit by a bullet that had been fired in the air. She was taken to the Western Galilee Hospital in Nahariya.
