An elderly Jewish man was shot four times in a drive-by shooting as he sat outside a North Miami Beach synagogue Sunday evening waiting for services.
Local news media said Miami-Dade Police “detectives are investigating the shooting as a possible hate crime.”
According to Yeshiva World, the man in his mid-60s, identified as Yosef Noach ben Leah Tzivyah, was outside Young Israel of North Miami Beach waiting for mincha, or afternoon prayers, when six shots were fired from a dark colored car. Four of those shots hit the man in the legs.
The Jewish community ambulance service Hatzalah of Miami Dade was reported to have arrived first and the man was transported to Aventura Medical Center. Yeshiva World reports he is in stable condition.
North Miami Beach Police told the outlet they are looking for a “dark colored Camaro or Impala.”
Reportedly more details on the vehicle description will be made public after area security camera footage is reviewed.
This is a developing story.
