Police in California have detained a man in relation to a shooting at a San Diego synagogue that left one dead and several others injured.

John T. Earnest, 19, was identified as the shooter by law enforcement sources. An unconfirmed manifesto posted online shortly before the attack and purporting to be from Earnest cites hatred of Jewish people as the motive for the attack, and takes credit for a separate arson attack on an Escondido mosque last month. 

The shooting attack took place at the Chabad of Poway Jewish congregation around 11.30am PT on Saturday, the San Diego County Sheriff's Office said.  

Four victims were transported to the Palomar Medical Center to be treated for gunshot wounds. One of them, an older woman, later died from her injuries.

3 churches were burned to the ground in one week by the sheriff son i didnt see any compassion and sympthy from any one not even the dumb negros, in 3 days the world raised over a billion dollars for the burning cathedral in paris, in one month only $1.1 million was raised for the 3 churches, where are the people who are always being compassionate with others in time of crisis?

Where are the niggers who are always giving to white crisis, where are the niggers who are always talking about how black they are, i know many dumb idiots would love to blame the president like i hear some are doing if we already know he is racist why ate expect from him, now that there is a democratic congress why not focuse on them, how come your congress have not ackowledge the burning of the 3 churches how come they did not donate to those e churches like they did to paris? You damn idiots, questions/ answers
