US tourist opens fire in Israeli hotel, 1 dead

A US tourist opened fire in an Israeli hotel in the Red Sea resort city of Eilat on Friday, leaving one person dead and three others suffering from shock.

The incident reportedly began with an argument between the man, who works in the kitchen at the Leonardo Club hotel of Eilat, and another employee. The victims were evacuated to Eilat’s Joseftal Medical Center.

When a hotel security guard tried to break up the fight, the man grabbed his gun and started shooting, killing another hotel employee who worked in the kitchen.

Police said that the man subsequently barricaded himself in the kitchen in the Leonardo Club hotel but did not hold anybody hostage.
