The 19-year-old accused of killing one person and injuring three others at a California synagogue allegedly tried to burn down a mosque last month.

John Earnest was taken into custody following the shooting at the Chabad of Poway Jewish congregation in San Diego on Saturday.

Lori Gilbert-Kaye, 60, was killed in the attack. The three injured victims were identified as Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein, an eight-year-old girl visiting from Israel, and the girl’s 34-year-old uncle Almog Peretz, who was also visiting from Israel.

A manifesto posted online shortly before the attack and purporting to be by Earnest cites hatred of Jewish people as the motive for the attack, and takes credit for a separate arson attack on an Escondido mosque last month.

The manifesto author claimed he tried to burn down the Dar-ul-Arqam mosque in Escondido on March 24, adding that he spray-painted the message ‘For Brenton Tarrant’ in the parking lot of the mosque.

Tarrant allegedly killed 50 people at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand in March, a week before the arson attack in Escondido.

Authorities at the time said the suspect had left a message in graffiti in the mosque’s parking lot that referenced the New Zealand shooting.

Surveillance video captured a suspect pouring a flammable liquid near a side door of the mosque and then setting it on fire. People who were inside the mosque at the time were able to put out the flames with a fire extinguisher.

Authorities are now investigating Ernest’s alleged involvement in the arson attack.

The manifesto author wrote that he was carrying out the attack on the synagogue because he was a good Christian.

‘My god understands why I did what I did,’ it read, according to The Jerusalem Post.

The author claims that Jewish people were responsible for the murder of Christ and now control the media and economy.

‘Every Jew young and old has contributed to these,’ it reads. ‘For these crimes they deserve nothing but hell. I will send them there.’

The manifesto author revealed he believed he would be freed from prison and promised to ‘continue the fight’.

In the 4,000-word manifesto, which was posted online before the shooting, the author described himself as a 19-year-old nursing student and native of California.

Earnest was a student at California State University, San Marcos, CSUSM President Karen Haynes confirmed in a statement.
