POWAY, Calif. -- (WGN) -- It was the last day of Passover, one of the holiest days of the year, and Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein was preparing to lead a memorial service at Congregation Chabad in Poway, California, about 22 miles north of San Diego.

He had just spoken to Lori Kaye, a close family friend. She had come to the synagogue Saturday to honor her mother, who had recently passed away, Goldstein said, standing before a group of reporters a day after the shooting with both of his hands bandaged.

Then he saw an unthinkable sight.

"Here is a young man, standing with a rifle pointing right at me," Goldstein recalled. "And I look at him. He had sunglasses on. I couldn't see his eyes. I couldn't see his soul."
