A police helicopter flew over the complex and spotted the gunman, who appeared to be reloading, San Diego Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman said at a press conference.

Jerry Falwell Jr. Calls Donald Trump The 'Dream President' For Evangelicals

Evangelical leader Jerry Falwell Jr., an early backer of Donald Trump, enthusiastically praised the president’s first 100 days of office.  
“I think evangelicals have found their dream president,” Falwell said on Saturday during “Justice With Judge Jeanine” on Fox News
Falwell cited “reuniting Israel with America” and appointing “people of faith” throughout the administration as the reasons evangelicals in general remain highly supportive of Trump.  
Falwell also trashed moderate Republicans, who he said “make my blood boil.”
“Honestly I have more respect for Democrats than I do moderate Republicans,” Falwell said. “At least Democrats admit what they believe, and they say it up front, and at least you know what you’re dealing with.”
Last year, Falwell faced a mutiny at Liberty University, the school where he serves as president, over his support for Trump.
