People of nearly all religions have been murdered while practicing their faith.
Bias and hate against any group can be a warning sign for violence.
The risk is higher if a person targets differences in race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation.
Sometimes, people target these groups because they have negative beliefs about a religion or faith. In fact, extremism or fundamentalism can fuel these motives.
In some cases, political or social ill will has driven this violence.
Without a doubt, ease of access to firearms can add to gun violence against religious groups.
Nearly 1 in 3 religiously motivated hate crimes were anti-Semitic and targeted Jews.
The murderer posted anti-Semitic comments on social media before the attack, a key warning sign.
According to several news sources, the gunman was a white supremacist with ties to violent organizations.
In addition to racially motivated crimes, shooters have targeted people of color at their places of worship.
Nearly all mass shooters showed warning signs. That means you can help prevent violence when you know the signs and how to get help.
