3 dead in attacks at Kansas City-area Jewish sites

Family members have identified two of the three people killed in attacks at Jewish-affiliated facilities near Kansas City as a man and his 14-year-old grandson.

Will Corporon issued a statement saying his father, Dr. William Lewis Corporan, and nephew, Reat Griffin Underwood, were killed in Sunday's attack outside a Jewish community centre in Overland Park.

The family is Christian.

Authorities haven't released the name of a woman or girl who was killed minutes later in an attack at a Jewish retirement community a few blocks away.

Police arrested a man in his 70s after the shootings. They haven't released his name but have said they don't think he knew the victims.

Police have declined to say if they think the attack was motivated by anti-Semitism.
