Jerusalem - Israeli police say the Tel Aviv shooter, an Israeli Arab who killed three people at a bar in the coastal city last week, has been killed in a shootout with police.

Police spokesperson Luba Samri said the gunman "was found in a building" on Friday. She says he came out shooting at the Israeli forces and "was then shot and killed."

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.
