One killed in shootings at Jewish center

SEATTLE, July 28 (UPI) -- A man who said he was angry at Israel shot five people Friday at a Jewish community organization in Seattle, killing at least one.

Police arrested a suspect almost immediately after the shootings at the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle, the Seattle Times reported.

Amy Wasser-Simpson, vice president for planning and community services at the federation, told the newspaper she got eyewitness accounts from other staffers. They said the shooter told them "I'm a Muslim-American -- I'm angry at Israel," and then opened fire.

At least three of the people who were shot were women, one of them 17 weeks pregnant.

"A number of staff people heard some popping sounds, then they heard a scream," Wasser-Simpson said. "They escaped out the back door."
