SAN DIEGO, CA
19-year old John Earnest, who is the suspect in the shooting at a San Diego Synagogue on Saturday, is also the author of a manifesto, who claimed to have set a nearby Mosque on fire last month. In the manifesto, Earnest wrote that his inspiration for the crime came from the gunman who killed 50 people at two Mosque in New Zealand.

Reuters (@reuters) reported, Earnest turned himself in to police shortly after carrying out the deadly shooting at the San Diego Synagogue that was filled with Sabbath worshippers at the time of the assault. Earnest walked into the suburban San Diego Synagogue late Saturday morning, the last day of Passover, and opened fire with an Ar-15 assault-style rifle. One woman was killed and three other people were injured in the act of domestic terrorism including the Rabbi. Earnest then sped away in a car, and eluded an off-duty border patrol agent, who managed to get off a couple of shots at Earnest before he fled. A short time later, Earnest pulled the car over and surrendered to police officers.
