BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Popular wedding singer Shafiq Kabha was shot dead late Tuesday by unidentified gunmen in Umm al-Fahm, locals told Ma'an.

Kabha, 53, sustained critical injuries in the attack and was taken to Hillel Yaffe Medical Center where doctors pronounced him dead.

Israeli police said in a statement that an ambulance evacuated a man with critical gunshot wounds to the medical facility in Hadera.

Initial investigations suggest that two suspects shot opened fire at Kabha from a motorcycle before fleeing the scene. Israeli police are looking for the suspects.

Born in the village of Kafr Qara in northern Israel, Kabha is considered one of the most popular Palestinian wedding singers both in the West Bank and Palestinian towns in Israel.

He leaves behind a wife and four children.
