The Israeli Arab gunman who shot dead three people in Tel Aviv last week has been killed in a shootout with police, Israeli officials said.

The gunman “was found in a building” on Friday, police spokeswoman Luba Samri said.

He came out shooting at the Israeli forces and “was then shot and killed”, she said.

The gunman was identified earlier as Nashat Milhem, an Arab from northern Israel.

He opened fire at a bar on a busy street in Tel Aviv last Friday, killing two people and wounding several others. He later also shot and killed an Arab taxi driver.

The incident came amid more than three months of near-daily Palestinian attacks against Israeli civilians and soldiers.
