HAARETZ: A gunman shot dead 3 people and wounded at least thirteen others in an attack at a central Tel Aviv gay and lesbian center Saturday night before fleeing the scene.

Israel Police said that the incident at the club on Nahmani Street did not have a terror motive. The two victims were initially identified as a young man and a young woman

Meretz MK Nitzan Horowitz, Israel’s only openly gay lawmaker, condemned the attack as a hate crime.

“This is undoubtedly the worst incident targeting the gay community in Israel. It has the characteristics of a hate crime, of someone who attacked to blindly strike out at every person on the spot.”

An eyewitness said that he had been sitting at nearby Cafe Nior when he heard gunshots.

“We saw a woman running toward us covered in blood,” Adi Shimoni told Channel 10. “We saw the gunman flee in the direction of Ahad Ha’am [Street]… He was wearing what looked like a ski mask.”

Shimoni said that he had then entered the club, where “there were many wounded and a lot of blood.”
