Additional details emerge about gunman in deadly synagogue shooting

Additional details emerge about gunman in deadly synagogue shooting

Retired Tree of Life Rabbi Alvin Berkun, who knew almost all of the victims, said Bowers penetrated all three areas of the synagogue where the worshippers were gathered.

The dead include a 97-year-old woman, a husband and wife, and two brothers - all of whom were at services inside the Tree of Life synagogue when Robert Bowers allegedly burst in through an open door, screaming anti-Semitic slurs and shooting.

"This was likely the deadliest attack on the Jewish community in American history, and our thoughts are with the families of those who were killed and injured, as well as the members of the Jewish community around the world who are in so much pain tonight", Ryan said in the statement.

In 2014, a pair of shootings occurred at a Jewish Community Centre and a Jewish retirement community in Kansas. "It is part of the fabric of Pittsburgh", Mr. Peduto said.

Outside the memorial hall, hundreds of attendees who couldn't fit into the auditorium gathered in the rain to listen to the event on speakers while inside, community leaders vowed to remain strong in wake of the massacre.

As one of our loyal readers, we ask you to be our partner. "He gets up in the morning with new and inventive ways to divide us", US Representative Adam Schiff, a California Democrat who is Jewish, said on CNN's "State of the Union" broadcast on Sunday. We are resilient. We will work together as one.

Some complained that the confrontational, nationalistic rhetoric of US President Donald Trump has encouraged right-wing extremists and fed a surge in activity by hate groups.

The assault on the 150-year-old congregation was the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in recent U.S. history. She lived next to 84-year-old Bernice and 86-year-old Sylvan for almost 40 years, she said, and they were the 'sweetest people you could imagine.

Chuck Diamond was a rabbi at Tree of Life until about a year ago, and he remains a member of the community, living just around the corner from the synagogue. During the shooting, a bris ― a Jewish circumcision ceremony for an infant boy ― was reportedly taking place at the Tree of Life synagogue.

"This evil Anti-Semitic attack is an assault on humanity", Trump posted on Twitter on Saturday. "We'll get through this darkest day of Pittsburgh's history by working together". We will defeat hate with love.

Mr. Bowers, 46, is charged with 29 federal counts and will make his first court appearance Monday afternoon.

Bowers has been arrested and is being treated for gunshot wounds at a hospital. Brady said each of those 11 counts is punishable by death.

Authorities said he wore tactical gear and carried an AR-15 rifle and three Glock 357 handguns into the building at about 9.50am - and used all three, leaving shell casings scattered on the floor.

Charny and two others fled to a cramped storage room upstairs and hid until they thought it was safe to come out.

Brady said shells were found strewn through the grisly crime scene, but he could not estimate the number of shots fired.

Multiple officers were harmed during the encounter.

"They're committing genocide to my people", the suspect told a SWAT officer after being shot and captured, according to a federal criminal complaint released Sunday. State authorities have also leveled charges. You know that cliche about people whose laugh is infectious? "Screw your optics, I'm going in", he posted.

Officials say they are in the early stages of an investigation, and for now, they are treating the attack as a hate crime. Police also raced to synagogues in Washington, New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles to provide additional security.
