Police said Frazier Glenn Cross, also known as Frazier Glenn Miller, killed three people in attacks at a Jewish community center and Jewish retirement complex near Kansas City on Sunday.

2. Frazier Glenn Miller, the man who allegedly opened fire and killed three outside at two Jewish facilities in Kansas, was charged with one count of capital murder and a count of premeditated first-degree murder.

His bond is set at $10 million. Miller, who was a prominent white supremacist in the 1980s, may be eligible for the death penalty under the charges. He will appear in court at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, ABC News reports.

3. A man opened fire outside a Jewish Community Center and a retirement community in a suburb of Kansas City, Kan., on Sunday, killing three people.

A spokesperson for the Overland Park Police Department in Kansas confirmed to BuzzFeed that there were three fatalities. The first shooting was reported to the police around 1 p.m., a spokesperson for the Overland Park Fire Department said.

“There was a shotgun that was involved,” Overland Park Police Chief John Douglass said in a press conference Sunday night. “We are exploring the possibility that a handgun was involved in the shooting at the two persons that he missed, and we are looking at the possibility of an assault rifle.”
