BREAKING: 2 Dead in Mercaz Clal Shooting

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

A shooting has just occurred in the Mercaz Clal building, in the center of Jerusalem. Two people in a third floor law office were just shot and killed. A man in his 60s and a woman in her 20s.

Police are saying it appears to be a personal/criminal attack.

Mercaz Clal on Yafo street houses a police department, a branch of Mas Hachnasa (Tax Authority), and Hotzaah L’Poel (government debt collection agency), as well as numerous private businesses.

It was one of the first tall buildings built in Jerusalem. It also allegedly had a curse placed on it by a well-known Rabbi, after the new building blocked the sunlight to his yeshiva.

Update: The two people killed were Natan Jorno, 56, and his daughter Yamit Jorno, 26. They were killed by a disgruntled security guard over a personal dispute.
