Neo-Nazi Terror Attack in Kansas

14 Apr 2014 by CST

On the afternoon of 13 April, a suspect identified as 73-year-old Frazier Glenn Cross Jr (a.k.a. Glenn Miller) reportedly opened fire with a shotgun in the car park of the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park, Kansas. One victim died at the scene and a second died from his injuries a short while later in hospital. Approximately 15 minutes later, the attacker again reportedly opened fire in the car park of Village Shalom, a nearby retirement home, killing one person.

The victims in the first shooting were William Lewis Corporan, aged 69 years, and his grandson Reat Griffin Underwood, aged 14 years, both of whom are United Methodist Christians. Reat was one of hundreds of young people from throughout the neighbourhood who were attending the centre for a singing contest. The victim in the second shooting was a woman who has not been named at this time.

According to law enforcement reports, the suspect was arrested without incident a short while later in the car park of a nearby school. He is reported to have shouted "Heil Hitler" during the shootings and arrest. Cross (see profile here) was a former Ku Klux Klan leader in North Carolina, where he then led the now defunct White Patriot Party. He was also active in the infamous neo-Nazi terror group, The Order and the hate site, Vanguard News Network (slogan: "No Jews, Just Right").

At present there is no known UK link to the shootings.

CST has been in contact with Police and strongly advises the UK Jewish Community to follow existing security measures at this time.

Please direct any security enquiries to CST.
