Shootings in Kansas City at two Jewish sites have left at least three people dead. On April 13, Boston.com reported that a suspect has been taken into custody. According to police, one person was shot and killed at the Jewish Community Center on 5800 W. 115th Street. Two more people were shot and killed at an assisted living facility called Village Shalom.

According to the report, there were about 75 people inside the community center at the time of the shooting. It's unclear how many people were injured. The names of the deceased have not been revealed and it is unknown if the three victims were adults or children.

The shootings at Kansas City Jewish sites appear to be driven by someone anti-Semitic. Police say that the unidentified suspect yelled "Heil Hitler" just before police cuffed him. Local station KCTV posted video of the suspect's arrest. The suspect looks to be a middle-aged man, perhaps in his 60's.The arrest was made about a mile away from Village Shalom at Valley View Park Elementary School. It appears as though the suspect acted alone.

Details on the gun used or how the suspect got the gun are unknown at this time. Police have been releasing details slowly but once they piece things together, they will likely make or release a statement.
