The blogger.com website has been down all day, so I wasn’t able to post a link to the story that has made national news – the shooting at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum on Wednesday afternoon, where museum guard Stephen Johns was killed. The museum is located at 100 Raoul Wallenberg Place, just south of the National Mall, and has been open since 1993. Here are a few links from The Washington Post, NBC 4, Fox 5, and CNN. The museum will remain closed tomorrow in honor of Stephen Johns.
Update: Suspected shooter James W. von Brunn is still too ill to appear in court, according to an article in The Washington Post. von Brunn was shot in the face by security guards after he was suspected of fatally shooting guard Stephen Johns and is currently being treated at United Medical Center in Southeast.
Update #2: A hearing is scheduled for von Brunn on June 30th, according to an article in The Washington Times.
Update #3: The June 30th hearing was postponed until July 10th, because von Brunn still can't leave the hospital, according to an article in The Washington Post.
Update #4: According to The Washington Post, Von Brunn is still unable to appear in court, so his hearing has been postponed again until July 30th.
