Trial opens for Seattle Jewish Federation shooter

April 15, 2008 01:03

The man accused of shooting up the Seattle Jewish Federation two years ago, killing one woman and wounding five, was not insane but had a deliberate plan to make a blood-soaked political point, prosecutors said Monday as his trial opened. Naveed Haq, 32, a Pakistani-American born in the United States, has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to charges of murder and attempted murder in the July 2006 attack. If convicted, he faces life in prison without parole. Prosecutor Erin Ehlert told jurors Monday that Haq carefully planned his attack, making four separate trips to gun shops and using the Internet to map the 227-mile trip from his parents' home in Pasco in eastern Washington state to the Jewish Federation in Seattle.
