Two killed in overnight shooting incident in Netanya

A shooting in Netanya has left two people dead and six people injured late Monday night. The shooting, which is believed to be criminal, occurred at a house on Isser Harel street in the city.

Magen David Adom paramedics received reports of the shooting at 11:23 pm. A preliminary report from the MDA said two people were seriously injured, one moderately injured and two lightly injured. The two seriously injured persons, Ron Yaakov, 19, and Aviv Boaron, 20, were evacuated in critical condition to the Lianado Hospital in Netanya where they would later succumb to their wounds. Four other wounded were lightly and moderately injured and evacuated Hillel Yaffe Medical Center in Hadera and the Meir Medical Center in Kfar Saba.

The shooter apparently climbed over a fence into the backyard of the home and started shooting at a group of people there.

“This is a difficult event of indiscriminate shooting in backyard,” Chief Superintendent of Ami Ben David said to press at the scene, later adding that police are working to locate the shooter.

The Rishon Lezion Magistrate’s Court has placed a gag order on all details that could identify the suspect or suspects in the shooting.

This shooting comes as a young man was shot dead by an assailant on a motorcycle while driving on the Bat Yam promenade Monday evening.
