1 dead, 3 wounded in synagogue shooting - authorities

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore said an older woman has died and three people were wounded after a 19-year-old white male opened fire with an assault-style rifle on Saturday at the Congregation Chabad synagogue in the town of Poway, California, about 23 miles north of downtown San Diego.

Poway Mayor Steve Vaus said this was "not Poway" and that the community would get through this together.

The suspect, whose identity was not immediately made public, fled the scene by car and was arrested a short time later when he pulled over and surrendered to police, authorities said at a news conference.

The gun violence at the Congregation Chabad synagogue unfolded six months to the day after 11 worshippers were killed and six others were wounded by a gunman who stormed a synagogue in Pittsburgh yelling, "All Jews must die." The assailant in that incident was arrested.

Saturday's Passover violence followed a recent spate of deadly attacks on houses of worship around the world.

Suicide bombings during Easter Sunday services at several churches in Sri Lanka killed more than 250 people.

Weeks earlier a gunman who opened fire at two mosques in New Zealand left 49 people dead and more than 40 wounded, some as they knelt in prayer.

Poway Mayor Steve Vaus, speaking from a police command center, characterized Saturday's shooting as a "hate crime," saying his assessment was based on statements uttered by the gunman when he entered the synagogue.

Speaking with reporters at the White House, U.S. President Donald Trump said, "My deepest sympathies go to the people that were affected." He added that "it looks like a hate crime" and that authorities will "get to the bottom of it."
