News Digest: Police shooting Sunday night 27 May


"Arab woman shot and injured in the leg after refusing to stop at the request of border police.
On Sunday evening the suspect walked from Beit Hanina [1] in East Jerusalem to Yekutiel Adam Street in Pisgat Ze'ev [2], Jerusalem. A border police patrol asked her to stop. She did not respond to their calls even after they fired shots in the air, after which she was shot in the leg and neutralized.
At first it was suspected that she was carrying an explosive device on her body, but at this stage it seems that this suspicion was unfounded. The suspect was evacuated in moderate condition to Shaare Zedek Hospital in Jerusalem. A police bomb squad found that the suspect did not carry any kind of weapon whatsoever."
