Shooting at L.A. Synagogue

An armed man entered the parking garage of a North Hollywood synagogue and opened fire Thursday morning, wounding two men who were heading to a prayer service, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. The gunman, wearing a black hoodie, walked into Adat Yeshurun Valley Sephardic Synagogue’s parking garage shortly before 6:20 a.m., the LAPD reports. He fired on two men before fleeing, while witnesses called 911. While both victims are in local hospitals in good condition, detectives are looking to identify the gunman, who some believe was motivated by hate. Police made one arrest an hour after the shooting, but they do not believe they have found the appropriate suspect. Detectives are also trying to determine whether or not he acted alone and have alerted nearby temples.
