JERUSALEM (AP) -- Israeli police say a suspected Palestinian motorist has rammed his car into five people near a Jerusalem police station, injuring five, before he was shot and wounded by a security guard.

Police spokeswoman Luba Samri described Friday's assault as a "terror attack." She says four of those injured in the attack were police officers.

Samri says that according to initial reports, the motorist is apparently a Palestinian from east Jerusalem. The attack took place near a police station in east Jerusalem, and the injured were taken to the hospital.

Samri says the motorist got out of his car holding a knife, and a security guard shot and seriously wounded him.
