California synagogue shooting suspect identified; 1 dead, 3 injured including rabbi, authorities say

A 19-year-old man armed with an assault-type rifle opened fire inside a Southern Californiasynagogue on Saturday as worshipers prepared to celebrate the last day of Passover, killing a woman and injuring three others, authorities said.

An unidentified off-duty border patrol agent who was inside Chabad of Poway synagogue fired at the shooter – identified later as John Earnest – missing him, but striking his getaway vehicle, authorities said. 

While in the vehicle, Earnest called 911 to report the shooting, San Diego Police Chief David Nisleit said. When an officer reached the man on a roadway, “the suspect pulled over, jumped out of his car with his hands up and was immediately taken into custody,” he added.

A girl and two men – including the rabbi – were wounded and transported to the hospital. They were said to be in stable condition.

At a news conference later Saturday, San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore said FBI and homicide agents have interviewed Earnest and they are looking into his social media accounts.
