Leaders are reacting to the synagogue shooting that killed one person and injured three others near San Diego on Saturday.

A 19-year-old man armed with a rifle opened fire inside a synagogue near San Diego as worshippers celebrated the last day of Passover, authorities said.

The shooting came exactly six months since a shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue killed 11 people in the deadliest attack on Jews in U.S. history.

President Donald Trump expressed his condolences to those affected and praised law enforcement on Twitter.

Meanwhile California Gov. Gavin Newsom condemned the attack, citing several other tragedies at places of worship.

California Rep. Adam Schiff and Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris responded on twitter, denouncing the act of anti-Semitism.
