An Israeli guard at a boarding school in Jerusalem shot and wounded two Arabs on Monday as they were unloading merchandise from a truck.

The wounded men were taken to Hadassah Hospital, where one later died of his injuries. The other was lightly hurt, Israel Television reported.

The incident occurred at the Or Baruch boarding school in Jerusalem’s Bayit Vagan neighborhood.

The security guard was detained by police, who were attempting to determine why he had opened fire.
