Unidentified assailants on motorcycles killed one passerby, and wounded another, in what appears to be a botched Mob hit in the town of Ramle late Wednesday night.
Police are combing the area for the assailants who immediately sped away from the scene.
The victim is a 17-year-old boy. Another man, 36, suffered moderate wounds.
A Magen David Adom medical crew arrived at the scene and attempted to resuscitate the boy, who suffered serious head trauma. He was then placed on a respirator and taken to Assaf Harofeh Hospital near Rishon Lezion.
The 36-year-old man suffered gunshot wounds to the stomach and chest.
Police told Army Radio that the youth was an innocent bystander who was not the intended target of the hit.
