This is a developing story. More information will be posted as it becomes available.
Update 12:27 pm CDT – The suspect is Yishai Shlissel, the same man who stabbed 4 people at the Jerusalem gay pride parade in 2005. Shlissel, who is completely unrepentant, was recently released from prison and even though he lives within close walking distance of the parade, it seems police did not bother to have surveillance in place to watch him during the parade.
