MD native killed in Mumbai

A foundation in Virginia is confirming the deaths of a man and his teenage daughter in the terrorist attacks in India.

A spokeswoman with the Synchronicity Foundation said Friday Alan Scherr and his 13-year-old daughter, Naomi, were killed while they were in a cafe in Mumbai.

Bobbie Garvey says the 58-year-old father and his daughter were identified by colleagues.

The two lived at the Nelson County foundation, about 15 miles southwest of Charlottesville, which promotes a high-tech form of meditation.

Garvey said Scherr is a Maryland native and a former college professor.

Scherr was a faculty member at the University of Maryland and a professor at Loyola.

Garvey said four other members of a 25-member delegation from Synchronicity were injured and are recovering.
