A Palestinian militant carried out a drive-by shooting near the national headquarters of the Israeli police in Jerusalem Sunday, killing two people and wounding five others before being shot dead following a frenzied chase through the streets of the holy city, Israeli police and emergency services said.Police said the shooter was a 39-year-old man from the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan.In a statement issued in the Gaza Strip, it identified the shooter as Musbah Abu Sbaih, an activist known as the "Lion of Al Aqsa".The group said he had been arrested by Israel five times in recent weeks and had been ordered to stay away from east Jerusalem and the Al Aqsa Mosque.It said he had been summoned earlier Sunday to begin serving a four-month term of "administrative detention," in which Israel can hold suspected militants without charging them.Sunday's attack in Jerusalem was the deadliest on Israelis since June 8, when two Palestinians opened fire and killed four people at a popular Tel Aviv food market.The Palestinian attacks began around the Jewish holidays a year ago. Israel says most of the dead were attackers, though Palestinians have accused Israel of using excessive violence.
