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 center 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.


President Barack Obama is offering condolences to the families of those killed in Sunday's shootings outside a Jewish community center and a retirement village in Kansas.

Obama says he has asked his White House team to make sure law enforcement authorities have "the necessary resources to support the ongoing investigation." He is pledging the full support of the federal government during what he called "this trying time."

 Obama says reports of the shootings were "heartbreaking."
