Three people were shot and wounded in a suspected terror shooting attack in Tel Aviv on Thursday night, police and medics said.
A terror attack occurred on Rechov Dizengoff next to a coffee shop in Tel Aviv on Thursday evening at about 8:40 p.m.
Three men in their 20s were injured, one critically, one seriously, and one lightly, and were evacuated to Ichilov Hospital in the city. The lightly injured victim is being treated for shrapnel injuries and the other two victims were transferred to the operating room for emergency surgery.
The terrorist was neutralized by a Border Police officer who was on leave and happened to pass by the scene of the incident as well as a civilian police volunteer who had come to the area to pick up his daughter. His daughter told Walla News that her father and the police officer each shot three bullets at the terrorist and neutralized him.
Israeli security forces have launched a manhunt for a second terrorist who apparently fled the scene.
