And so it begins................ the deadly manifestations of the resurgence of Jew hatred.
Police: Gunman in Deadly Wesleyan Shooting Threatened Victim, Is Targeting Jews
Authorities hunting nationwide for a gunman in disguise who killed a Wesleyan University student said the shooter had threatened the victim before, and they warned Jewish groups to be "vigilant" because he is apparently targeting them.
Police identified the suspect, who opened fire Wednesday on junior Johanna Justin-Jinich while she was working at a cafe bookstore, as 29-year-old Stephen Morgan.
The pair had attended a program together at New York University when Morgan began sending her harassing e-mails, according to a New York City police report.
"This was not a random act of violence," Middletown, Conn., Police Chief Lynn Baldoni told reporters Thursday. "Evidence uncovered overnight suggests that Mr. Morgan may be focused on the Wesleyan campus as well as the Jewish community."
Morgan allegedly wrote about targeting Wesleyan and its Jewish students in his journal, university student affairs vice president Mike Whaley told the Hartford Courant. Justin-Jinich, 21, was Jewish.
