Shooting at North Hollywood synagogue


Two people were shot in the legs at a synagogue in North Hollywood, Calif.

Los Angeles Police said an African-American man with a handgun entered the Adat Yeshurun synagogue at approximately 6:20 a.m. Thursday, according to media reports.

A man was detained near the facility, but a police spokeswoman said she was unsure if the arrest was connected to the shooting.

Police are investigating the incident as a hate crime.

The victims, both Jewish, are reported to be in stable condition and have been transported to a local hospital.
