JERUSALEM —

Israeli border police have shot dead a Palestinian man and wounded two others at the entrance to Jerusalem.

Border police spokesman Shai Hakimi says 40-year-old Akram Badr was traveling in a car that burst through a checkpoint at high speed early Monday and tried to run over officers who ordered him to stop.

Palestinian police said the car had entered a wrong lane and was backing up to enter the right one when Israeli border police mistakenly thought it was trying to hit them and opened fire.

Hakimi said police didn't know whether the Palestinians were armed because the car drove off, eluding security forces.
