Border police officer Lance Corporal David Shriki , who was critically wounded in the shooting attack near the Lions’ Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem 12 days ago, died of his wounds on Wednesday at the Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in the capital Jerusalem. Shriki, who suffered a head wound, was shot together with fellow Border police officer Imad Gadir, who was moderately injured, by an attacker who escaped to a nearby cemetery and has yet to be captured. The Israeli army launched an extensive search after the shooter during which nearby streets had been closed off for traffic. A police helicopter also joined in the search.
