Israeli police: American man kills chef at hotel
JERUSALEM – An American man who lost his job at a Red Sea hotel in Israel shot dead a chef at the resort Friday, then was killed himself in a shootout with Israeli commandos, police said.
Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld identified the suspect as William Hershkovitz, 23, of Poughkeepsie, New York, and said his family in the United States had been notified.
The motive for the attack in the resort city of Eilat was still under investigation, police said. But the head of the Oranim work and study program said it occurred days after Hershkovitz lost his job at the Leonardo Club Hotel.
