On Shavuot evening, two came to the home of a man with a criminal record, posed as police officers, and when he opened the door, shot and seriously wounded him. Evgeny Akmyolkov, a 28-year-old resident of Lod, was arrested after police officers identified him from the photographs because he did not hide his face. The court extended his detention for nine days.
On the eve of the holiday, in the morning, two suspects arrived at the victim's address in Bat Yam, posed as police officers, knocked on the door, and when the victim opened the door, opened fire, miraculously not hurting his wife and two children, aged one and two, after one of the bullets actually hit the living room. The police opened an investigation and luckily the suspects were caught on the security cameras, when they identified the shooter and yesterday he was arrested.

This morning he was brought to the Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court for an extension of his detention, where a police representative said that they had many investigative activities including arresting other people involved, including the second suspect whose face was also visible. The police representative added that the suspect is currently performing community service due to a conviction, but that day was not a working day.
The police and defense attorney reached an agreement according to which the suspect's detention would be extended by nine days, and Judge Avital Amsalem extended his detention, stating in her decision: "I find that there is reasonable suspicion linking the suspect to the offenses attributed to him. There is a statutory dangerousness type of grounds for arrest."
