Shooter with Nazi emblems once belonged to fraternity started as Jewish group
houstonchronicle.com / Thu, 29 Sep 2016 03:18:00 UT

A lawyer who wore a German World War II uniform complete with Nazi emblems earlier this week when he went on a shooting rampage outside his southwest Houston condominium was once in a college fraternity founded by Jews. Nathan DeSai was a member of the Sigma Alpha Mu chapter at the University of Houston from 1990 to 1993, the fraternity's national office confirmed Wednesday. "Since his graduation more than 23 years ago, we have no record of (DeSai) having any involvement with our organization," Andy Huston, the fraternity's executive director, said in a statement. Five guns in total were recovered, two from the scene - along with 2,600 rounds of ammunition - and three at DeSai's home, including two handguns and a rifle and an unknown number of rounds. According to their website, Sigma Alpha Mu was established in 1909 at the City College of New York as a fraternity of Jewish men. DeSai helped restart the Sigma Alpha Mu chapter at UH that had been closed since World War II sent so many college-age men into the military. First and foremost, our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of Monday's tragic events in Houston and their families. Interim police chief Martha Montalvo said she is preparing a detailed report showing what the department could have done better in responding to Monday's incident, but on Wednesday she did not identify anything her department would have done differently if it had more resources.
