At the Jewish Federation building in Seattle this afternoon, a man walked into the building--somehow got a shotgun through security according to one locally-reported source--and shot at least six women, according to the local King 5 news team.

He's reported by eyewitnesses to have announced, upon his arrest, "I'm a Muslim American. I'm angry at Israel," although the AP account contradicts that statement.

One fatality. Five injuries. Three in critical condition. The suspect is in custody.

You might spare a thought or good wish for the victims and their families.

I heard bail was set pretty high on the gentleman arrested for this. Seems like your local authorities took the crime very seriously, or at least they were very concerned about public opinion.
