Jewish Father of Three Among Eight Killed in Beer Warehouse Rampage

A Jewish father of three was among the victims of a shooting rampage at a Connecticut beer warehouse.

Louis Felder, the director of operations at the Hartford Distributors in Manchester, was one of eight people shot dead Tuesday morning by an employee accused of stealing, who then killed himself.

Felder was a member of the Young Israel of Stamford.

Steve Hollander, the company’s head of marketing, and a member of the Hollander family that founded and owns the company, was reported to have been shot, according to the Hartford Courant.

“The Hollander family is probably one of the most venerated families in the Hartford area in the Jewish community,” U.S. Rep. John Larson (D-Conn.) told the Courant. “There isn’t a charity that they haven’t contributed to.”
