The man was identified as Frazier Glenn Cross of Aurora, Mo., in Johnson County booking records. He is a 73-year-old former leader in the Ku Klux Klan with a long history of anti-Semitism and racism.

A doctor and his 14-year-old grandson were killed in the parking lot at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City and a woman was killed a short time later in a parking lot at Village Shalom, a senior living community about a mile away, the police said.

Cross was charged with first-degree murder and was scheduled to appear in court Monday afternoon.

The Southern Poverty Law Center tracks “hate groups” and identifies the man as Frazier Glenn Miller, 73, commonly known as Glenn Miller, and said he was the founder and grand dragon of the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.

Miller was taken into custody on Sunday afternoon at a local elementary school near Village Shalom, the police said. In video taken by KMBC, a local television station, the suspect yelled “Heil Hitler!” while sitting in a police car.

The police said it was too early in the investigation to determine whether the attacks were a hate crime.
