Good God. This looks like the latest episode in what is looking like the spate of right-wing violence we've been predicting:
WASHINGTON - At least two people were shot at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington on Wednesday, authorities say.
D.C. police spokeswoman Traci Hughes said a person walked into the museum with a rifle and shot a guard. Hughes says the shooter was also shot.
Hughes says the victims' conditions were not known. Both were being rushed to a hospital.
I was just in the Holocaust Museum on Friday. It is a sacred and hallowed place, and this man was clearly out to defile it. More details as they arrive.
UPDATE: MSNBC's Pete Williams is reporting that the suspect was an elderly man who belonged to white-supremacist organizations. More details shortly.
UPDATE2: Here are the details so far from Williams:
The suspect, who was not identified, was reportedly a man, born in 1920, who had possible connections to hate groups or anti-government groups.
