SCARSDALE - Local Jewish community centers are stepping up security following the shooting of three people at a Jewish community and senior center outside Kansas City on the eve of Passover. 

Karen Kolodny, the executive director of the Jewish Community Center of Mid-Westchester in Scarsdale, says that Homeland Security is reminding agencies to be vigilant and maintain constant security. 

The suspect in the Kansas shootings, 73-year-old Frazier Glenn Miller, is the founder of two white supremacists groups.

Miller has been preliminarily charged with first-degree murder, but state and federal authorities are looking to press additional hate crime charges against him.
