Shooting at Cafe Noir, Gay Club in Tel Aviv, Leaves 3 Dead
A shooting has taken place at Cafe Noir, a gay hangout in Tel Aviv, that leaves three people dead and about fifteen injured; six of the wounded are very badly hurt. Police are saying that most of the victims are minors.
Police have now ordered all gay clubs in Tel Aviv to be closed while they launch a manhunt for the gunman.
Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said late Saturday that it was "most likely a criminal attack and not a terror attack."
The gunman fled the scene, but witnesses said that he entered the club, dressed in black, and just started shooting. Police said he used a semi-automatic weapon.
An GLBT (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender) activist told Ynet that it appeared to be a "deliberate act against the gay community."
One report indicated that one of the two fatalities was a 17-year-old girl.
