Israel's Army Radio reported Sunday the officer had spotted several Palestinians trying to cross into Israel and gave pursuit, Haaretz said. When he caught up with one of them, a 37-year-old Hebron man, the two struggled and the Palestinian allegedly tried to take away the officer's gun.
The weapon accidentally discharged, killing the Palestinian, the officer told investigators.
