The latest evidence has shown that the shooting incident outside Denver Yeshiva that resulted in the tragic death of a 19-year-old yeshiva student early Wednesday morning is not a “drive-by shooting” incident.
Sources said the victim identified as Shmuel Silverberg of University Heights was chased and shot inside the Yeshiva compound by two unidentified attackers.
The suspects on-board a car arrived and started shooting at the windows of the dormitories of Yeshiva Toras Chaim at 1555 Stuart Street.
The victim who was outside run inside the compound but he was chased by the suspects and shot at point-blank.
After shooting the victim the suspects also shot the principal four times but it missed.
The suspects then escaped in an unknown direction.
The police earlier said the assailants did not deliberately attack the yeshiva, as there have been several other similar shootings in the area which did not target Jewish people or institutions.
