OVERLAND PARK, KANSAS (WKOW) -- ABC News reports the 73-year-old man accused of killing three people at a Jewish community center and retirement community near Kansas City is a former leader of the Ku Klux Klan.
Fraiser Glenn Cross, Jr. of Aurora, Mo. was arrested in the parking lot of an elementary school near the scene of the shootings and according to the Johnson County, Kansas Sheriff's Office, he was booked on a charge of first degree murder.
According to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), Cross is an alias for Frasier Glenn Miller, the former KKK leader.
Two of the shooting victims have been identified by family as Dr. William Lewis Corporon and his 14-year-old grandson Reat Griffin Underwood. The two were shot in the parking lot of the Jewish Community Center. A third victim, a woman, was shot at Village Shalom retirement community. She has not been identified. Police believe the shooter also fired at two others, but missed.
"We're investigating it as a hate crime, we're investigating it as a criminal act, we haven't ruled out anything," Overland Park Police Chief John Douglass told ABC News.
The SPLC identified Cross as Miller after a phone conversation with his wife, in which she told the organization police said he had been arrested.
