Four neat bullet holes pock-mark the wall on the roof of Muataz Hijazi's family home in East Jerusalem, where Israeli police shot the 32-year-old dead at dawn Thursday.Downstairs, the living room still reeked of tear gas.Police said that Hijazi began shooting at officers who returned fire, killing him.Police had also burst into several neighboring houses.Maryam Hijazi, a cousin of the victim who lives next door, said police arrested her brother and sister in a simultaneous raid, and took them in for questioning.After the gunshots had rung out from the cluster of homes inhabited by the Hijazis and their neighbors in the crowded and hilly part of Abu Tor, in Arab East Jerusalem, dozens of Israeli police officers surrounded the area and later appeared on adjacent rooftops.
