At least one person has died and four were injured in a shooting Saturday at a synagogue in the San Diego suburb of Poway, Calif.

Lev said Gilbert-Kaye, the mom of a 22-year-old daughter, had gone to the synagogue also to say Kaddish, a Jewish prayer for the dead, for her own mother who had recently passed away.

According to the NBC 7 report, Earnest produced an online manifesto in which he took responsibility for arson at a nearby mosque in nearby Escondido last month, and on Reddit said he planned to livestream his shooting Saturday on Facebook.

San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore said both were wounded by shrapnel in the attack on the final day of the week-long Jewish holiday of Passover. The mayor praised the response from local, state and federal law enforcement, saying they "all worked brilliantly together to bring this to a quick resolution".
