Sick Story

A 33-year-old Queens man was shot in the chest by a robber while walking with his young son yesterday morning, the authorities said.

Mr. Frishman was walking with his son, who is 7, through a playground near Hicksville Road in Far Rockaway about 8:30 a.m. when a man approached them and demanded money, according to investigators and neighbors. After Mr. Frishman protested that he was not carrying any, the robber shot him once in the chest, with what investigators described as a small-caliber firearm.

A neighbor said that Mr. Frishman and his son, who was not injured, were headed to a nearby synagogue.
We know of this guy. He works in the local camp, his wife teaches in a local school.
What kind of animal shoots someone in front of his young child?
Let's just say this got me pretty rattled up over Tisha B'Av.
Thank God, the father seems to be doing well after surgery, though doctors were unable to remove the bullet and need at least one additional round of surgery to do so.
No word on how the 7-year-old is doing emotionally. I'm sure this is going to be quite difficult for him to get past.
Here is an article that quotes the 7-year-old boy extensively.

Update (Corrected): Don't know how I managed to leave this out, but the man's name is Eliahu ben Hinda Rachel. (Thanks, Mar Gavriel, for pointing out the omission.)

Thanks, I guess I left that out by mistake. The fast can blur your mind.
Eliahu ben Hinda Leah.

It's actually Eliahu ben Hinda Rachel, not Leah. The email that had been circulating apparently had the incorrect info.
