(JNS.org) The man charged with murdering three people in shootings at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City in and a nearby retirement village last April said he was surprised to learn that his victims were not Jewish. 

White supremacist Frazier Glenn Miller, Jr., 73, of Aurora, Mo., is accused of killing Dr. William Lewis Corporon, 69, Corporon's 14-year-old grandson, Reat Griffin Underwood, and 53-year-old Terri LaManno. All three victims were Christian, but Miller told the Kansas City Star he went to the two locations "for the specific purpose of killing Jews.”

Miller said he "was convinced there would be all Jews or mostly Jews" at the locations, but that the shootings still accomplished his goal of making "Jews feel less secure.”
