Posted:

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (WREX) — A Johnson County jail official has identified the man accused of fatally shooting three people outside Jewish sites near Kansas City as Frazier Glenn Cross, a former "grand dragon" of the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.

Police say Cross, 73, killed Dr. William Lewis Corporan and his grandson, 14-year-old Reat Griffin Underwood outside a Jewish community center in Overland Park, Kansas, on Sunday. A female was killed shortly afterward in an attack a few blocks away at a Jewish retirement community.

According to public records, Cross also goes by the last name of Miller. The Southern Poverty Law Center claims he has long been a white supremacist.
