A gunman opened fire on a Jewish Democrat who is running for mayor of Louisville, Kentucky. Craig Greenberg, the candidate, said he is safe.

“My team and I are fortunately all safe,” Greenberg said in a message posted Monday on Twitter after the attack. “We are all with [Louisville Metro Police] now. I will provide an update as soon as possible. Thank you for the outpouring of support.”


WDRB, a local TV news outlet, quoted a councilman, David James, as saying the gunman fired on Greenberg at his office in the city’s Butchertown Market.

There has not yet been a report of an arrest or a motive.

Greenberg, an entrepreneur who runs a professional wrestling business, declared for mayor last year.
