Suspected gunman arrested after Jerusalem bus shooting

Suspected gunman arrested after Jerusalem bus shooting

Israeli police Sunday arrested a suspect in a pre-dawn shooting spree targeting a bus just outside Jerusalem's Old City not far from the Western Wall that wounded eight people.

The gunman started spraying bullets at the public bus and people on the street in the attack at the Tomb of David bus stop near the Old City's Zion Gate.

Following an hours-long manhunt, police said a suspect had turned himself in. They also published a picture of the handgun he had allegedly used.

Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid told his cabinet meeting that "this is a lone assailant, a resident of the city with a criminal record".
