At approximately 0130 local time on 14 August 2022 (2230 UTC on 13 August), a gunman opened fire on a bus in Jerusalem’s Old City near the Western Wall bus stop. The bus was carrying Jewish worshippers from the Western Wall and had stopped near the Tomb of David at the time of the attack. Eight people were injured in the shooting, including five U.S. nationals. The gunman, an Arab Israeli resident of East Jerusalem, later turned himself in to police officers. Authorities believe the man acted alone; he has no known connections to militant groups but was previously imprisoned on criminal charges
