Charges Filed in Seattle Shooting

SEATTLE, Wash.- Naveed Haq is accused of killing one woman and injuring five others at the Jewish Federation office in Seattle.

Prosecutors in King County charged him for the shooting.

The list of charges against him includes one count of aggravated murder, five counts of attempted murder, and burglary, kidnapping and harassment charges.

Police said Haq forced his way into the building by threatening a 14-year-old girl at the door and blamed Jews for unrest in the Mideast.

King County prosecutor Norm Maleng calls the act a hate crime, and says he'll spend the next 30 days deciding whether to seek the death penalty.

Earlier, a spokesman for Haq's family said the death penalty would be a real tragedy because of his mental state.

If one of the five wounded victims were to die, prosecutors can add more aggravated murder charges in the future.

Haq's arraignment is scheduled for August 10.
