WASHINGTON (AP) US authorities say an 88-year-old white supremacist will be charged with murder in connection with a deadly shooting at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial and Museum.
City Police Chief Cathy Lanier revealed the charge to be brought against the man authorities earlier identified as James von Brunn.
Federal authorities says they are convinced that von Brunn was responsible for the slaying of security guard Stephen T. Johns.
Joseph Persichini, assistant director of the District FBI field office, said authorities at this point have no information indicating that von Brunn had any assistants or accomplices.
