WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum will reopen after a day of mourning for a guard authorities say was killed in an attack by a rifle-toting white supremacist.

There were few signs of the shooting left outside the museum Friday ahead of a scheduled 10 a.m. (1400 GMT) opening. Crime scene tape was gone and the bullet-scarred front door had been replaced

About two dozen flower bouquets and a photo of 39-year-old guard Stephen T. Johns formed a makeshift memorial outside one corner of the museum.

Authorities have charged 88-year-old James von Brunn with murder in the Wednesday attack.

Police said Von Brunn remained in critical condition early Friday at a Washington hospital. He was shot in the face in an exchange of gunfire with other guards.
