(Scroll down for video) Several Jews who were walking home from a synagogue on Thursday night, were shot at in an unprovoked attack, police in Maryland said.
The Baltimore County Police Department said that they are investigating the shooting that occurred on the first day of the Jewish New Year holiday, as an anti-Semitic incident.
The three men were walking on Old Pimlico Road, when a car approached them. As the car was beside them, they saw the driver holding what looked like a BB gun or an air rifle.
The man then shouted “Jews, Jews, Jews” and fired the gun in their direction. The man fled from the scene. Police said that the three men were not injured.
Investigators found a pellet hole in the glass window of Bais Hamedrash Mesivta of Baltimore. Police are looking for the gunman, who was described as a white male with brown hair and a dark complexion.
The suspect was driving a black and white Toyota Corolla or Prius.
