SALT LAKE CITY -- A federal grand jury has indicted a 21-year-old Salt Lake City man on gun and hate crime charges after an attack at a Utah synagogue.
Justice department officials say Macon Openshaw intentionally shot at the Congregation Kol Ami synagogue in Salt Lake City between Jan. 1, 2012 and April 30, 2012. The shooting broke windows and damaged the window frame.
Prosecutors say Openshaw's actions were motivated by bias and had to do with the building's religious character.
Charges against him include using a gun in relation to a crime, possessing a firearm with an altered serial number and possessing a firearm while subject to a protective order.
The case is being investigated by the FBI.
