This video series from the USA is called Holocaust Museum Shooting, 6-10-09.
From a US commenter:
While gathering information for the live report on the shooting, Smith directly addressed the rise of right-wing terrorism in America. Referring to “the crazies” who refuse to believe Obama is a U.S. citizen, militia groups, and those who screamed about the recent Homeland Security Report …etc.
Smith also interviews the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Heidi Beirich. I wonder if he realizes he works for the main propaganda stream for these so-called “crazies”?
From Daily Kos in the USA:

WASHINGTON – A gunman exchanged fire with security guards inside the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum on Wednesday. One security guard and the gunman were taken to a hospital.
Law enforcement officials identified the suspect as James Wenneker von Brunn, born in 1920, from the Eastern Shore of Maryland, NBC News reported. NBC said he may have had connections to hate groups or anti-government groups.
With the second rightwing political shooting in as many weeks, will the conservative media apologize for their “outrage” at the Department of Homeland Security report on “rightwing extremism”?

Update: Think Progress is reporting that it appears that von Brunn:
… has been approvingly cited on Stormfront, a national white supremacist website. He is apparently the author of a tract called, “Kill the Best Gentiles,” which his website describes as “a new, hard-hitting exposé of the JEW CONSPIRACY to destroy the White gene-pool.” Brunn, a WWII veteran, also wrote a screed on President Obama’s citizenship that was re-posted to popular right-wing blog Free Republic.
