    The suspect, a resident of the east Jerusalem suburb Al 'Eizariya, was arrested some three weeks ago, shortly after he posted the video on the Internet. An indictment will be filed against him soon.
    The young man was documented shooting from a vehicle, and then walking in the direction of the dog and shooting directly at it. The dog was seen and heard yelping in pain. It did not survive.
    The suspect then returned to the vehicle, where him and his friend are heard laughing while the dog laid there dying.
