OVERLAND PARK, Kansas (AP) — A Jewish Community Center in Kansas where two people were shot to death on Sunday has reopened.

The center in Overland Park opened its doors early Wednesday, three days after a man shot and killed a doctor and his grandson in the parking lot. The 73-year-old suspect, Frazier Glenn Cross Jr., then allegedly drove to a nearby Village Shalom senior living center and shot and killed a third woman.

Cross, a known white supremacisty, was charged Tuesday with first-degree murder and capital murder.

People were in line waiting for the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City to reopen. The center has become a hub of activity for all people. It has about 8,500 members; 45 percent are not Jewish.
