Officers began their search after receiving a tip about an odor coming from the building.

“In this case, our Licensing Enforcement team acted swiftly to take the appropriate actions.”

The licenses are suspended indefinitely.

“Grieving families must be able to trust that their loved ones’ remains will be respectfully and properly handled,” Rokita said.

“Further, the unsanitary conditions at this funeral home posed a clear and immediate threat to public health and safety. "

He continued to say that his office is committed to making sure that anyone entrusted with a professional license issued by the state is meeting the required standards.

The officers also found the cremated remains of 17 individuals.

Upon learning of the conditions at the facility, the Attorney General's team on July 26 filed for emergency license suspensions with the State Board of Funeral and Cemetery Service.

The shooter later turned himself into Israeli authorities, according to cops.

Local media reported the suspect was a Palestinian from east Jerusalem.

Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid said: "Let all those who wish us evil know that they will pay a price for any harming of civilians.

“Jerusalem is our capital and a center of tourism for all religions. Police forces and the IDF are working to restore calm and the feeling of security to the city."

Palestinian militant factions in Gaza praised the attack, however did not claim responsibility for it.

Gaza said the attack was “a natural response to the occupation’s daily crimes against our people, our country and major Muslim and Christian sites.”

The suspected Palestinian attack comes just a week after violence flared between Israel and militants in Gaza.

It comes a week after the worst outbreak of hostilities in more than a year, when Israeli jets pounded the narrow coastal strip in what the military said was a pre-emptive attack aimed at preventing an imminent threat to Israel.

At least 49 people were killed in Gaza and hundreds more wounded during 56 hours of fighting which also saw more than 1,000 rockets launched towards Israel by the militant Islamic Jihad faction.

Tensions have continued since, with three gunmen killed in a shootout with Israeli security forces in the West Bank city of Nablus last week.
