KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — One of four people killed in an attack at a crowded Israeli synagogue was a native of Kansas City, Missouri. Fifty-year-old Rabbi Kalman "Cary" William Levine died when Palestinian attackers armed with meat cleavers and a gun burst into a synagogue in Jerusalem during prayers Tuesday morning. A man who answered the door Tuesday afternoon at the Kansas City address listed for Levine's parents said the family didn't want to talk. At least three people arrived at the home during a 15-minute period, including a woman who also declined to comment. Levine attended Hyman Brand Hebrew Academy in Overland Park, Kansas, before leaving the area in his 20s for Israel. The school said it was gathering information and planned a news conference later Tuesday.
