Hearing For Museum Shooting Suspect Set For Monday

A judge is expected to hear a report on the health of a white supremacist accused of killing a security guard at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.

Court records say a hearing is set for Monday in U.S. District Court on the status of 88-year-old James von Brunn (vahn BRUHN'). He is charged with first-degree murder in Wednesday's fatal shooting of 39-year-old Stephen T. Johns, who was black.

Authorities say von Brunn was shot in the face when other museum guards returned fire. He remains hospitalized, and FBI officials have said he is likely to survive.

The court must decide when von Brunn's initial court appearance will be.

An FBI spokeswoman says the court has appointed a federal public defender to represent him.

    zoban, I'll comment. I guess this man is not what we call a "thug". He's worse. He makes me sick..how can anyone live with so much hate for someone just because they are not the same as you. I just don't understand it. I'm white and thank goodness the world is not full of white people who act like me, worship like me, beleive like me, . ect. God made ALL people.....and he made them all different for a reason. For someone to think they are so above all others is nothing but SICK. I hate to think that my tax dollars will even buy him an asprin!!!
