Deadly Attack on Gay Teen Club

A masked gunman opened fire at a club for gay youths in Tel Aviv on Saturday, killing two and wounding at least eight. Police say the shooting is "criminal rather than nationalistic," though the security clampdown that followed the incident is reminiscent of Palestinian attacks of the past. The gunman stormed the Tel Aviv Gay and Lesbian Association building and "opened fire in a basement room where teenage homosexuals were holding a weekly support group," Reuters reports. Police stopped short of labeling it a hate crime.
