An orthodox Jewish man has been shot and wounded in front of a synagogue in North Miami, Florida, according to several US media outlets.

According to these sources, the suspect fired six shots at the 69-year-old man from a car and then immediately sped off.

The victim was injured in the leg and has been taken to a hospital.

The police are working on very little information, other than the fact that the perpetrator was driving a black car

On April 27, the last day of the Jewish Passover festivities, a 19-year-old man opened fire in a California synagogue, killing a woman and injuring three people. That attack took place exactly six months after the shooting spree in a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where eleven people were killed.
