    Accused Holocaust museum shooter dies

    By DEVLIN BARRETT, Associated Press Writer Devlin Barrett, Associated Press Writer 1 min ago
    WASHINGTON The 89-year-old man charged with a deadly shooting at Washington's Holocaust museum died Wednesday in a prison hospital, authorities said.

    At Butner federal prison in North Carolina, spokeswoman Denise Simmons announced that James von Brunn died shortly before 1 p.m. Wednesday.

    Simmons said the suspect had "a long history of poor health which included chronic congestive heart failure and sepsis." She said he was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

    Von Brunn's lawyer, A.J. Kramer, called the death "a sad end to a tragic situation," but declined further comment.

    The elderly suspect had been awaiting trial for the killing of security guard Stephen T. Johns at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum on June 10. Von Brunn had been wounded by return fire.

    Officials at the prison hospital had previously said chronic medical problems had complicated a psychiatric evaluation for the suspect, a white supremacist who prior to the shooting had written racist and anti-Semitic screeds on the Internet.

    One of the two guards who fired back at von Brunn said he had mixed feelings about his death.

    "I'm shocked. I'm glad he's gone. I wish he had his day in court but it'll never come," said Harry Weeks of White Plains, Md.

    Weeks returned to work in August and said he thinks often about his slain colleague.

    "He was a good man. There's not a day that goes by that I don't miss him," he said of Johns. "It's been very hard, there's not a day that I don't think about him when I'm on post."
    At least we now don't have to waste money on his trial and see him up on the stand spewing his hatred.

    Auf Wiedersehn, Von Brunn!

    Too bad his congestive heart failure didn't occur about 6 months ago.

    I was in Baltimore on business when the shooting went down. I had just bought a bushmaster AR15. So relieved when it was reported that he didn't use a black rifle. Although saw plenty of LEOs placing black rifles in car trunks over and over again. Lame stream media. Sucks the security guard died.

    What sucks is I wonder how much the last 6 months of keeping this guy alive cost taxpayers.
