The first condemnation of this afternoon's shooting at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum to hit our inbox comes from the politically active Council on American-Islamic Relations:
"We condemn this apparent bias-motivated attack and stand with the Jewish community and with Americans of all faiths in repudiating the kind of hatred and intolerance that can lead to such disturbing incidents."
Law enforcement officials have identified the suspect as 88-year-old James von Brunn, who media are describing as an elderly white supremecist from the Eastern Shore of Maryland. A Nexis search of public records turns up an 88-year-old James von Brunn linked to address in Easton, Hebron and Annapolis.
