The 89-year-old man accused of a deadly shooting at Washington's Holocaust museum died in a prison hospital on Wednesday. At a federal prison in North Carolina, spokeswoman Denise Simmons confirmed that James von Brunn died shortly before 1 p.m. Wednesday. Von Brunn had been awaiting trial for the killing of security guard Stephen T. Johns at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum on June 10. Von Brunn had been wounded by return fire but survived. Officials at the prison hospital had previously said chronic medical problems had complicated a psychiatric evaluation for the suspect, a white supremacist who prior to the shooting had written racist and anti-Semitic screeds on the Internet.
