2:09 PM Update: The latest news suggests that the gunman was a 89 year old male.
2:13 PM Update: Shooter apparently has a record of connections with white supremacist groups. NBC is reporting that the he tried to raid the Federal Reserve building in 1981. Long history of anti-Semitic and white supremacist remarks, etc.
2:22 PM Update: This is a photo of James W. von Brunn, the suspect in today’s shooting …
This is from his bio, apparently written by himself or someone sympathetic to him: “In 1981 Von Brunn attempted to place the treasonous Federal Reserve Board of Governors under legal, non-violent, citizens arrest. He was tried in a Washington, D.C. Superior Court; convicted by a Negro jury, Jew/Negro attorneys, and sentenced to prison for eleven years by a Jew judge. A Jew/Negro/White Court of Appeals denied his appeal. He served 6.5 years in federal prison. (Read about von Brunn’s “Federal Reserve Caper” HERE.) He is now an artist and author and lives on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.”
