Two terrorists, disguised as Orthodox Jews, were captured by police and taken in for questioning. According to initial reports, at least armed man opened fire at passersby near the Benedict restaurant. The shooter then reportedly opened fire at the nearby Ha’arbaa Street.
Times of Israel Police spokeswoman Merav Lapidot: “Two terrorists were involved, both were neutralized. One is wounded, the other’s condition is unclear at the moment. All these details are preliminary.” One bystander tells Israel Radio the Sarona Market shooters were dressed as Haredi men.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu landed at Ben-Gurion International Airport from Moscow soon after the shooting and headed straight to the Defense Ministry headquarters near the shooting for consultations with Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman, Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan, Israel Police chief Roni Alsheich, Shin Bet head Nadav Argaman and other officials.

A video emerges of a police officer purportedly shooting one of the suspected terrorists at the Sarona Market shooting in central Tel Aviv, in which three people were killed.
Channel 2 reports one of the suspected terrorists who opened fire on the crowd at the Sarona Market in central Tel Aviv is moderately wounded and being treated at Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv, where eight of the victims are also being treated.

In April, Israeli police moved to close down the upscale Sarona Market at the center of Tel Aviv over fears that the commercial center was not sufficiently secure, but the site’s management said it would stay open.
MUSLIMS CELEBRATING THE ATTACK:
The popular compound is home to Israel’s largest indoor culinary market. Its 8,700 square meters (93,000 square feet) of market space hosts 91 shops of all varieties. At the time, police asked the Tel Aviv Municipality to revoke Sarona’s business license, arguing that lax security put the visiting public at risk.
An eyewitness tells Channel 2 that he saw the shooter open fire. When he ran out of bullets, he threw the firearm under a chair and fled toward Carlebach Street.
