Shooting at California Synagogue Leaves 1 Dead, 3 Injured on Last Day of Passover
A source had told CBS News that a rabbi was among the injured.
One person has died and at least three have been injured in a shooting Saturday, the last day of Passover, at a synagogue outside of San Diego.
San Diego County Sheriff William Gore said a 19-year-old man walked into the Chabad of Poway center and opened fire with an AR-style weapon just before 11:30 a.m., CBS News reported. The synagogue had a scheduled Passover celebration for 11 a.m.
A woman named Lori-Gilbert Kaye died, according to CBS News. A girl and a man were hit with shrapnel from bullets and are being treated at the hospital. The synagogue's rabbi underwent surgery to treat defensive wounds to his fingers. According to NBC News, he lost his right index finger.
"The Poway I know comes together," Poway Mayor Steve Vaus said at a press conference. "We always walk with our arms around each other and we will walk through this tragedy with our arms around each other.
Gore said an off-duty Border Patrol agent shot at the suspect as he fled the scene. The suspect then called police from his car to report the shooting. A California Highway Patrol officer later spotted the suspect in his car and pulled him over. The suspect got out of his car with his hands up and was arrested.
The suspect is also being investigated for a possible role in an arson incident at a nearby mosque last month.
