The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that friends said the woman killed in the shooting at a Poway, California, synagogue was Lori Kaye, 60, of Poway.
The newspaper reports that witnesses said she jumped in front of the synagogue’s founding rabbi, Yisroel Goldstein, who was wounded in the index fingers on both hands.
The Union-Tribune also says that others injured were Noya Dahan, 8, hit with shrapnel in the face and leg, and Almong Peretz, 34, who was shot in the leg as he ushered children in a playroom to safety.
President Donald Trump praised law enforcement’s “incredible response” to the attack at a synagogue near San Diego that left one dead and three wounded.
Trump, who was speaking at a Saturday rally in Wisconsin, singled out an off-duty Border Patrol agent “who returned fire.”
San Diego County Sheriff William Gore says the Border Patrol agent was working as a security guard and fired as the gunman was fleeing, hitting the getaway car.
Gore says there were indications that the attacker’s gun might have malfunctioned after firing inside the synagogue.
The sheriff says they’re investigating the attack as a possible hate crime.
The Chabad of Poway was worshipping on the last day of Passover, exactly six months since a shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue killed 11 people.
Authorities say the rabbi of a synagogue near San Diego is one of the three people wounded in an attack that left a woman dead.
San Diego County Sheriff William Gore told reporters Saturday that there are indications 19-year-old John Earnest’s gun might have malfunctioned after firing numerous rounds at the mosque.
An off-duty Border Patrol agent working as a security guard at the synagogue also shot at the gunman as he fled but only hit his car.
Authorities say they are serving search warrants on his house and are aware of an anti-Jewish online screed that someone identifying themselves as Earnest wrote about an hour before the attack.
Gore says they’re investigating the attack as a possible hate crime.
The Pittsburgh synagogue where 11 people were killed exactly six months ago is offering its sympathy to a synagogue near San Diego where a gunman opened fire Saturday.
The Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh said in a statement that “we are heartbroken — and appalled and outraged. … This must stop.”
The statement says the Pittsburgh congregation knows “the fear, anguish and healing process such an atrocity causes.” The attack Oct. 27 was the deadliest attack on Jews in U.S. history.
Authorities say a young man opened fire inside a synagogue near San Diego on Saturday, the last day of Passover. A woman was killed and three other people were wounded.
Authorities have identified the suspect in a shooting at a synagogue outside San Diego as John Earnest and say he’s also being investigated in a fire at a mosque in a nearby city last month.
San Diego County Sheriff William Gore told reporters Saturday that the 19-year-old had no prior arrests. He’s accused of killing a woman and wounding three others at Chabad of Poway on the last day of Passover.
Gore says his department will work with the FBI and the city of Escondido to investigate Earnest’s possible connection to an arson that caused property damage at Dar-ul-Arqam mosque last month but no injuries.
A person who said they are John Earnest wrote an anti-Jewish screed online that contained some elements not to be believed, like an allegation a YouTube star helped plan and fund the attack.
The post says he was in nursing school and cited the suspects accused of carrying out deadly attacks on mosques in New Zealand last month and a Pittsburgh synagogue last year.
Pittsburgh officials hearing of the synagogue shooting in California are offering sympathy from the city that six months ago was the site of the deadliest attack on Jews in U.S. history.
Pittsburgh Public Safety Director Wendell Hissrich said Saturday that their thoughts were with those in the San Diego area and “we understand this heartache all too well.”
Authorities say a 19-year-old man armed with a rifle opened fire inside a synagogue near San Diego on Saturday, the last day of Passover. A woman was killed and three other people were wounded.
