Two Palestinians arrested in Tel Aviv shooting which killed four

Two Palestinian shooters opened fire Wednesday night at a popular food and shopping complex near the Israeli Defense Ministry in Tel Aviv, killing four Israelis.

Two terrorists were captured, Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said, with one shot and the second arrested at the upscale Sarona Market.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called “a savage crime, murder in the heart of Tel Aviv. We will take the necessary steps to attack the attackers and defend those who need to be defended,” he said.

Amir Ohana, a member of the Israeli Parliament who was at Sarona Market, told CNN that “People were having coffee,” he said. “I saw a birthday cake on one of the tables. And then you see the chairs upside down and glass shattered and blood all over.”

The four fatalities were Israeli, Rosenfeld said.
At least five other people were wounded from the terrorist attack, said Dr. Gil Fire, deputy director of Ichilov Hospital.
An injured suspect also was treated.
Information about a motive wasn’t immediately available. No intelligence suggested an attack was imminent, Rosenfeld said.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.
