JERUSALEM (AP) — The Latest on a shooting in Tel Aviv (all times local):

11:15 p.m.

The Tel Aviv district police commander says the shooting that killed three people was a "harsh terror attack" carried out by two Palestinian gunmen from the West Bank.

Moshe Edri says both of the attackers have been detained and one was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Another five people were wounded in the shooting, which took place near the popular open-air Sharona market.

Israel has been struggling to cope with eight months of Palestinian attacks that have killed 28 Israelis and two Americans. About 200 Palestinians have been killed during that time, most identified as attackers by Israel.

10:45 p.m.

Israeli police say three people were killed and several wounded when at least two gunmen opened fire in central Tel Aviv.

Spokeswoman Luba Samri says there were reports of shooting in two locations close to the popular open air Sharona market on Wednesday night.

Another spokeswoman, Meirav Lapidot, said initial reports show there were "at least two terrorists." She says both were "neutralized," which can mean either killed or detained.

Police are searching the area to make sure there are no other attackers or possible bombs. Channel 10 TV says reports indicate that at least one of the attackers was disguised as an ultra-Orthodox Jew with black coat and hat.
