A security guard has been shot at the Holocaust Museum by a gunman. Information is still coming in that at least 2 people have been shot, one is law enforcement.
That area of DC has been sealed off. Rumors are circulating that the gunman is in custody.
Is there any end to hate crimes? A doctor, a soldier, who else will be mowed down because some people feel they have the right to take matters into their own hands.
More information as the story unfolds…
Update: According to DC police, 2 people have been transported to Georgetown Hospital in serious condition.
Update 2: The alleged shooter has been identified as James Von Brunn. He is an anti-Semite and has been convicted of crimes related to his white supremist beliefs. There some confusion about his age at this point. If he is who police believe him to be, he is a WWII veteran and is quite elderly.
The gunman is in critical condition. The security guard is in grave condition.
This act seems to be terrorism and a hate crime at this point.
