Seattle Jewish federation gunman found guilty

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

NEW YORK (JTA) — The man who shot up the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle building in July 2006 was found guilty of murder in his second trial.

A jury found Naveed Haq, 34, guilty on all eight counts against him. Haq, of Pasco, Wash., will spend the rest of his life in prison.

Following nearly two months of testimony, the jury agreed with the prosecution that Haq knew full well what he was doing when he wounded six women, killing one, at the federation building nearly 3 1/2 years ago.

Haq suffers from a mental disorder and his defense claimed he could not understand his actions.
