White supremacist James Von Brunn is the injured suspect in today’s shooting of a National Holocaust Museum security guard, police tell the Washington Post. The guard has since died of his injuries at a local hospital, sources tell WJLA-TV. On his anti-Semitic website, von Brunn, 88, claims he served in World War II and that he was later convicted of an unstated crime by “a Negro jury, Jew/Negro attorneys, and sentenced to prison by a Jew judge.”
Authorities say von Brunn entered the museum alone with a rifle and immediately opened fire. In addition to the guard who was killed, another was wounded in the exchange of gunfire. Von Brunn himself is in critical condition. Authorities found a notebook among his possessions with more than 100 targets, including the museum.
