Three people were dead Sunday after a shooting at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City in Overland Park, Kansas, an official said.

Shootings occurred at two locations, and one person is in custody, said Jason Rhodes, a spokesman for the Overland Park Fire Department.

A building at the center is on lockdown, and police are at the scene, the center said in a Facebook post.

CNN affiliate KSHB reported that there were two separate shootings at Jewish centers in the area -- one at the community center and one at an assisted living facility.

The FBI is at the scene working with local authorities investigating shootings that occurred at two locations, FBI spokesman Joel Sealer said.

At the time of the shooting, auditions for a dance competition and dance recitals were being held at the community center, KSHB said.

"This was a community center full of young teens, and they were on lockdown after the shots started. Some of these kids were taken into locker rooms and told to lay on the floor as the shots rang out," KSHB reporter Lisa Benson told CNN.

-- CNN's Matthew Stucker and Janet DiGiacomo contributed to this report.

deaf...too bad you didn't read the whole story of this murderer...yes, he did run for gov. on the Dem. ticket in '84...BUT he also ran for the Senate in '86 as a REPUBLICAN...would probably rightly conclude that you night actually have read the whole thing but only picked out the item that make your blood boil the most...but not the whole truth. Were you ever, or are now associated with a paramilitary group bent on anarchy, or part of the KKK yourself, deaf? Doubt you'd say "yes" to either.

You are one of the most despicable, lousy excuses for a human being, you idiot!! Someone who shouts "heil hitler" from the back of a police car, who is one of the most vile anti-Semites in this country, who has a cellular level hatred for anyone who isn't him, and your first words are re: political party? You are really no better than this sorry-*** jack*** dare you politicize murder...and angry right-of-right clowns like you commit far more crimes than those on the left, you fool!

Turns out he is a Democrat former gubernatorial candidate and Ku Klux Klan leader with a history of antisemitism and racism, law enforcement officials said. Didn't know that did ya? They tried hard to bury it so it wasn't in the news much.

Imagine the news medial if he had been a Tea Party guy!

So why are liberals so violent?
