The news came as investigators pieced together a disturbing portrait of the alleged shooter, James von Brunn, an 88-year-old white supremacist. Von Brunn, who allegedly entered the museum with a .22-caliber rifle and exchanged gunfire with Johns, was in serious condition after the shootout. Two other guards returned fire and wounded the alleged gunman. Von Brunn’s ex-wife told ABC News by phone that Von Brunn “was eaten alive like a cancer with his hatred of Jews and blacks.” ABC News

Miss California USA Carrie Prejean, who stirred up trouble for herself when she said gays shouldn’t be allowed to marry, heard two dreaded words from Donald Trump today: “You’re fired.” Trump, who owns Miss California USA’s parent organization, and other pageant leaders said Prejean was being got the boot not because of the remarks but because she hadn’t been holding up her end of the agreement she signed when she entered the pageant. They say Prejean was skipping Miss California USA events while speaking out against gay marriage at unsanctioned appearances. After the complaints reached Trump the mogul initially decided to give her a second chance and keep her on, but today changed his mind. CBS News
