OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) -- Less than two weeks before the fatal shooting of three people outside two Jewish sites in suburban Kansas City, a group that monitors anti-Semitic attacks in the U.S. cautiously noted a sharp decline in such incidents.

The contrast between the Anti-Defamation League's 2013 audit and Sunday's attack highlights what hate-group monitors say is a larger trend: more overall tolerance disrupted by periodic bursts of violence from a disenfranchised fringe.a

Avowed white supremacist Frazier Glenn Cross remains in jail in connection with the Sunday afternoon shootings that killed three people. It's unclear when formal charges will be filed, and a federal grand jury is expected to eventually consider what investigators are calling a hate crime.
