Teen open fires at Chabad of Poway synagogue, 1 killed
Synagogue : A 19-year-old gunman open fired at Chabad of Poway synagogue in Poway, California, on Saturday morning. One person has reportedly been killed and three have been injured in the incident, said authorities.
Poway Mayor Steve Vaus and San Diego County Sheriff William Gore confirmed that four people have been taken to the Palomar Medical Center with injuries of gunshot at around 12 pm.
One of the victims, an adult woman, lost her life; three others – one female child and two adults – are still under observation in the hospital. They are out of life threat.
"I can only tell you that we have a fatality," Vaus told MSNBC, "and I can also tell you that it was a hate crime, and that will not stand."
Saturday marked the six month anniversary of the massacre at Pittsburgh's oldest synagogue, Tree of Life, where an armed shooter killed more than 11 people and injured six others in the deadliest attack on Jews in the history of the United States.
US President Donald Trump also expressed deep sympathies with the victims of the shooting, which he said "looks like a hate crime," prior to departing for a rally in Wisconsin.
"My deep condolences to all of those affected," the president added.
