The attacker is said to be a Captain with the Jordan police force is also said to have killed a South African along with injuring two others Americans and four Jordanian. An investigation had been launched. U.S. Embassy:

Our heartfelt condolences go out to the families of all of the victims. The investigation is ongoing and it is premature to speculate on motive at this point. We are working closely with the government of Jordan and local security services on a full and comprehensive investigation. We strongly condemn this incident and we deeply appreciate the co-operation and support received from our Jordanian partners.

Jordan’s king calls for resignation

Makes Statement

King Abdullah becomes the first Arab leader to openly say President Assad should stand down, urging Assad to begin talks on an orderly transition of power and warning there will be more of the same if whoever replaces him does not change the status quo.

If Bashar has the interest of his country [at heart] he would step down, but he would also create an ability to reach out and start a new phase of Syrian political life. That’s the only way I would see it work and I don’t think people are asking that question.
