The two fled, one on foot, and one on a bike.

A reader updated us that today’s murder took place two blocks away from a Miami synagogue, which was vandalized with swastikas and the word “Hamas” last week.

The area has a large Orthodox-Jewish community, and a number of synagogues.

Raksin was from Brooklyn, NY and was in Florida visiting relatives.
