A shooting incident in Denver, which killed a young bochur on Tuesday night, was widely reported as a drive-by shooting.
Local authorities said that that this was a “crime spree” that ended with the senseless murder of 19-year-old Shmuli Silverberg.
But according to highly-credible sources, as well as multiple social media reports surfacing online, this is not what happened. This was not some “drive by shooting” where an innocent victim took a bullet.
Denver Police held a press conference on Wednesday, where they said nothing of the following facts:
– The shooters entered the Yeshiva building.
– The shooters opened fire at a principal, who was able to get out of the way and was unharmed.
– The shooters shot and killed Shmuli inside the Yeshiva.
If these reports are true, this was no “drive-by shooting” or a random “crime spree”.
A high-level NYPD Official tells YWN that if this shooting was in any Yeshiva or Shul anywhere in New York City, this would automatically be labeled as a hate / bias crime. Additionally, the FBI would have long been notified and had joined the investigation.
