There has been no arrest in the murder of a rabbi shot and killed on his way to temple in Northeast Miami.


Police says Joseph Raksin was in town from New York visiting family.


As he walked to a Miami synagogue, two men approached him, there was some sort of confrontation, and they shot Raksin.


Neighbors called for help, as Raksin lay dying.


His grandchildren were walking a few blocks behind him, and witnesses say they heard the gunshot that killed their grandfather.


He was later declared dead at a local hospital.


Police have held off on labeling this a hate crime.


But, the Orthodox Jewish community in the area is concerned.


This happened just blocks away from a temple where swastikas and the word "Hamas" -- referring to Palestinian militants in the ongoing Israeli conflict-- were spray-painted on the pillars.


There is a $50,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
