by

Los Angeles synagogues are on high alert after a shooting this morning at a North Hollywood temple sent two men to hospital with gunshot wounds. The shooting occurred at 6:20 a.m. at the Adat Yeshurun Valley Sephardic synagogue just as the two men where about to enter for morning prayers and is being investigated as a hate crime. According to the Los Angeles Times, sources say the gunman pulled out the weapon, which jammed at first, and fired. Police have detained one man and increased patrols around Jewish institutions, though they are still trying to determine whether the gunman acted alone. The victims were taken to hospital in stable condition.
