The Anti-Defamation League on Thursday expressed "deep concern" over a shooting at a Los Angeles synagogue earlier in the day which left two men injured. "While we have not confirmed the motive behind this horrendous act, we obviously take a shooting at a synagogue very seriously and ask for the community to contact LAPD or ADL with any information," Amanda Susskind, Regional Director of the ADL, said in a statement. "We commend the Los Angeles Police Department for immediately committing resources to vigorously investigate this crime and for their continuing commitment to the protection of all religious institutions," she added. The statement said that the organization was working with the LAPD, as well as the LA mayor's office.
