JERUSALEM, May 5 (Xinhua) -- Israeli security forces said on Wednesday they have apprehended a Palestinian "terrorist" suspected of carrying out a deadly drive-by shooting attack in the West Bank three days ago.

A manhunt led to the hiding place of the suspect in a house in the village of Silwad, northeast of Ramallah city, Israel's Shin Bet security agency said in a statement.

He was identified as Muntaser Shalabi, a 44-year-old resident of the village of Turmus Ayya near Ramallah. He is not affiliated with any Palestinian militant group, according to the statement.

In the drive-by shooting on Monday afternoon, the assailant opened fire at people who were waiting at a bus stop at the Tapuah Junction, outside the Jewish settlement of Tapuah.

Three Israelis were wounded, according to Israel's Magen David Adom emergency health service. One of them, Yehuda Gueta, a 19-year-old Yeshiva (Jewish seminary) student, succumbed to his wounds on Wednesday night.
