Attorney General Eric Holder intended to go to an event at the U.S. Holocaust Museum tonight with members of Congress before a shooting there this afternoon changed his plans, a DOJ spokesperson said.
A gunman — suspected to be alleged white supremacist James Von Brunn — shot a security guard at the busy D.C. museum and wounded himself earlier today, The New York Times said . Both were rushed to The George Washington University Hospital, according to The Times.
There was no indication that the shooting was connected with Holder’s expected visit, McClatchy reported .
Ironically, Holder was going to see “Anne and Emmett” a play by Janet Langhart Cohen about the “imaginary conversation after death between Anne Frank and Emmett Till, a merging of the minds between the Holocaust and the racist lynchings in the South,” The Times said.
