Gunman opens fire at Chabad Synagogue outside San Diego: 1 person dead, 3 injured

We’ve had the attacks on mosques and Christian churches, now we have a synagogue shooting. And not only was a similair weapon used, the gunman posted a similair manifesto online, obviously linked to, or influenced by, Tarrant and the Christchurch Al Noor attack. Here’s the MSM in the form of NBC with the story:

One person died after a 19-year-old man walked into a Chabad synagogue in a San Diego suburb Saturday morning and shot people inside, and the suspect is in custody, the sheriff said.

Three other people were injured in the shooting at Chabad of Poway, which occurred around 11:23 a.m., and those people are hospitalized and stable, San Diego Sheriff Bill Gore said.

“This individual was with an AR-type assault weapon and opened fire on the people inside the synagogue,” Gore said.

An off-duty Border Patrol agent in the area fired at the suspect as he fled the Chabad of Poway and struck his car, Gore and San Diego Police Chief David Nislei said at a news conference.

A San Diego police officer en route to the scene saw the suspect’s vehicle and “the suspect pulled over, jumped out of his car with his hands up,” Nislei said. As the suspect was being placed in custody, police “clearly saw a rifle sitting on the front passenger seat,” Nislei said.

The name of the man was not immediately released.

Four people who were shot were transported to hospitals and one of those, who Gore identified only as an older woman, died. A female juvenile and two adult men were at a hospital and were stable, he said. He called the shooting a “senseless act of tragedy.”

Gore would not release details of the suspect or a possible motive, saying he is being interviewed by the police and the FBI. Poway Mayor Steve Vaus said in a phone interview with MSNBC that “it was a hate crime, and that will not stand.”

San Diego Sheriff’s Sgt. Aaron Meleen said earlier that deputies were called on an “active shooter situation” and that “we’re confident that there are no shooters that are outstanding.”

Vaus said in a phone interview with MSNBC that the rabbi was shot in the hand, and he suggested that members of the congregation took action to confront the shooter.

“We are grateful to those in the congregation there that engaged the shooter and prevented this from being a much more horrific incident,” Vaus said.

Chabad of Poway had advertised an 11:00 a.m. “Passover Holiday Celebration” online. Saturday is the traditional weekly day of Jewish Sabbath. This Saturday is also the final day of Passover, a week-long holiday marking the deliverance of the Jewish people from slavery in ancient Egypt.

A neighbor whose backyard is across the street from the synagogue, Donny Phonea, 38, said that he heard three or four shots and some yelling.

“I peeked across from my backyard, and people were hiding behind a transistor box,” Phonea said. “I knew something was wrong. I had a sense this was probably hate related.”

President Donald Trump spoke to reporters on the White House South Lawn before departing for Wisconsin. “My deepest sympathies go to the people that were affected, their families, their loved ones,” he said. “Obviously it looks right now, based on my last conversations, it looks like a hate crime.”
