  • The shooting left one woman dead, and three others injured, authorities said.
  • An "open letter" detailing the author's hatred for Jews circulated online, attributed to "John T. Earnest," though authorities have not explicitly stated the manifesto was written by a suspect of that name.
  • The San Diego County Sheriff told reporters at a press conference they are investigating social-media posts and an open letter believed to be written by the suspect.
