"I'm a Muslim-American and I'm angry at Israel."

A shooting at the downtown Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle. Details are sketchy, but 1 person is confirmed dead, with "at least 4 wounded". The shooter, a Pakastani reported to be from the Tri-Cities (some say SeaTac), somehow got through the fairly tight security in the JFGS, told the staff members, "I'm a Muslim-American and I'm angry at Israel." and began shooting.

More available at the Times, PI, and Northwest Cable News.

On a very personal note : I'm rather glad I took the day off today, as the location of the shootings (Third avenue between Lenora and Virginia) is about 3 blocks from my office
