WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is offering condolences to the families of those killed in Sunday's shootings outside a Jewish community center and a retirement village in Kansas.
  
Obama says he has asked his White House team to make sure law enforcement authorities have "the necessary resources to support the ongoing investigation." He is pledging the full support of the federal government during what he called "this trying time."
  
Two men were killed Sunday when a man in his 70s fired shots behind the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City in Overland Park, Kan. The gunman then fled and opened fire at nearby Village Shalom, killing a woman, before being arrested near an elementary school.
  
Obama says reports of the shootings were "heartbreaking."
