Funeral services were held today for Lori Gilbert-Kaye, the lone congregant killed in a shooting at the Chabad of Poway in Poway, California — a small town outside San Diego.
Her services come as the family of a 19-year-old man who is suspected of opening fire on a crowd of about 100 congregants during a Passover celebration at a Poway synagogue said their son is now part of a “history of evil.”
The Earnest family released a written statement to NBC 7 on Monday condemning the alleged acts of their son, John T. Earnest, who faces one count of first-degree murder and three counts of attempted murder in connection with the shooting at Chabad of Poway on Saturday.
Long-time congregant Gilbert-Kaye, 60, was killed in the attack. Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein, 57, Almog Peretz, 34, and 8-year-old Noya Dahan were struck by gunfire and treated at the hospital for their injuries. The rabbi lost an index finger, which was the most severe of the injuries, Palomar Hospital officials said.
The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department said John Earnest, a graduate of Mount Carmel High School and student at Cal State San Marcos, walked into the crowded synagogue at 11:23 a.m. on Saturday and began firing on the people inside.
Anchor Stefan Holt also reports on the measles outbreak, Woodstock 50 and an NYPD officer who completed a feat no other officer has ever attempted.
