A civilian guard shot a Jewish man at the Kotel (Western Wall) on Friday morning.

Paramedics attempted to revive the man for 20 minutes, but were ultimately forced to declare his death.

The incident took place in the public bathrooms at the site. No others were injured in the incident.

The guard reported that the man shouted, “Allahu Akbar,” and pulled an unidentified object from his pocket. “Allahu Akbar,” literally “G-d is great,” in Arabic, is often shouted by terrorists immediately before an attack.

The circumstances of the event are being investigated.
