SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — Security has been increased at the Jewish Community Center San Francisco (JCCSF) as a precaution following the weekend shootings at Jewish centers in Kansas.
Frazier Glenn Cross, a 73-year-old known white supremacist, has not been formally charged in the shootings that killed two people on Sunday, but prosecutors said they have enough evidence to pursue hate-crime charges against him.
Nathanial Berkson Michelson with the JCCSF said they have no reason to believe that the shooting was anything but an isolated incident; still they are taking some precautions:
“We have heightened security right now and we will be monitoring the situation and making adjustments as more becomes clear,” he said.
San Francisco police have also increased patrols of the area. Anna Whitcher was teaching a class at the JCC.
