American inmate killed after he shoots guards

  • A prison inmate was killed after he shot three guards at a prison in Israel. Samuel Sheinbein was shot by the police Sunday when he seriously wounded two of those guards. 

    It's not clear as to how he gained access to the weapon. The 34-year-old pleaded guilty to a Maryland teen's murder in 1999 and the prosecutors accused him and his accomplice of picking up the teen from work and slashing him after strangling him with a rope. 

    The inmate admitted to the burning of the victim but mentioned that his accomplice was the killer. 

    The Israeli Supreme Court had decided that Sheinbein wouldn't be extradited to the US.
