Patriots hold moment of silence for Ezra Schwartz, teen fan killed in Israel
The observance was shown during ESPN’s broadcast of the game.
Schwartz was spending a year in Israel studying at a Jewish school and was killed last Thursday when a gunman opened fire on a van he was riding in. Israeli officials have identified the suspected shooter as Palestinian but have not released his name.
More than 1,000 people attended Schwartz’s funeral on Sunday.
Schwartz was from Sharon, Mass., which is located adjacent to Foxborough, where the Patriots play their home games. He had been accepted to attend Rutgers University next fall.
