President Obama Remembers Kansas Shooting Victims
President Barack Obama is remembering those killed at a Jewish community center and retirement complex, saying no one should have to worry about their security while gathering with their fellow believers.
Obama is speaking at an Easter prayer breakfast at the White House. He says the fact that Sunday’s attack in Kansas came as Jews prepare to celebrate Passover and Christians prepare for Easter makes the tragedy “all the more painful.”
The man accused of killing three people Sunday is a well-known white supremacist and former Ku Klux Klan leader who was once the subject of a nationwide manhunt.
The president also recalled his meeting at the Vatican last month with Pope Francis. He says the pope has inspired people around the world with his “simple, yet profound” actions.

Statement by President Obama on Today’s Shooting in Kansas
This afternoon we heard reports of a horrific shooting in Overland Park, Kansas. Michelle and I offer our thoughts and prayers to the families and friends who lost a loved one and everyone affected by this tragedy. I have asked my team to stay in close touch with our federal, state and local partners and provide the necessary resources to support the ongoing investigation. While we do not know all of the details surrounding today’s shooting, the initial reports are heartbreaking. I want to offer my condolences to all the families trying to make sense of this difficult situation and pledge the full support from the federal government as we heal and cope during this trying time.
