Los Angeles, April 28 A woman was killed and three people were injured after an armed man opened fire at a synagogue in California city of Poway on Saturday.

The shooting happened at around 11:30 am (local time) when the synagogue was hosting the last day of Passover, a religious service celebrating Jewish freedom. The assailant entered the synagogue and opened fire with an “AR style” weapon at the Chabad of synagogue in Poway, north of the city of San Diego.
An older female died in the shooting while three others — a young woman and two men — sustained injuries and were in stable condition at a local hospital, the report said.
The suspect, identified as John Earnest, a 19-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the synagogue shooting.
