Police in London are investigating a possible shooting incident earlier today at a kosher restaurant in Edgware, a heavily Jewish suburb in the north-west of the city. No-one was hurt in the incident, which left the windows of Orli’s cafe badly damaged.

Officials of the Community Security Trust, the communal security body of British Jews, were also on the scene, the Jewish Chronicle reported.

Eyewitness accounts posted on Twitter initially suggested shots had been fired from a car driving past Orli’s. According to the CST, it is “not clear what type of weapon used.” There are some reports that the damage was caused by marbles, and not live ammunition.

Local police said there had been four incidents of “windows being randomly shattered, possibly by marbles” and local officers were continuing their investigations. A house and a shop were also believed to have been hit.

“We do not believe it to be gunfire,” a Metropolitan Police spokeswoman said.

Justin Cohen, the news editor of London newspaper The Jewish News, reported on Twitter that police said the Orli cafe was one of four “buildings/cars targeted in Edgware. None of the others were Jewish.”

  • If four locations had broken glass and three were not identifiably Jewish, and no bullets were found, why do we assume shots were fired or that Jewish targets were chosen? Let the police do their job and let them tell us what they find. On the other hand, just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they’re not out to get you!

    “attack” or “shooting”?

    Nice way to tone down the vandalism.

    I wonder if the President will trot out his Press Secretary to say that it was only a random act and not intended to harm Jews? More coincidences for Obama.
