President Obama reflected on the Jewish site shootings in Overland Park during an annual prayer breakfast today (MON). Obama asked people of all faiths to come together to combat intolerance that can lead to hatred and violence.
“And as a government, we’re going to provide whatever assistance is needed to support the investigation. As Americans, we not only need to open our hearts to the families of the victims, we’ve got to stand united against this kind of terrible violence, which has no place in our society,” said Obama.
The shootings at two Jewish sites yesterday (SUN) left three people dead, including 14-year-old Reat Griffin Underwood and his grandfather William Corporon. The third victim hasn’t been identified. Frazier Glenn Cross, a 73-year-old Missouri man, has been charged in connection to the shootings.
