A Jewish gunman shot dead one man and wounded another in an apparent shooting spree in central Jerusalem on Tuesday, police said.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said investigators were considering all motives, including nationalistic, as one of the victims apparently was an Arab.

The suspect was apprehended after wounding a man on one of the city's main streets and then told officers that he had shot dead another man at a location close to the Old City.

"The suspect was questioned by police at the scene and said he had killed a man in central Jerusalem, we cannot rule out any motives including nationalistic," Rosenfeld said.

He added that the man was undergoing a psychological evaluation.
