Pittsburgh shooting: Suspect expressed hatred of Jews

Police respond to an active-shooter situation at the Tree of Life synagogue

Bowers shot his victims with an AR-15, used in numerous nation's mass shootings, and three handguns, all of which he owned legally and had a license to carry, according to a law enforcement official who wasn't authorized to discuss the ongoing investigation, and who spoke Sunday on the condition of anonymity.

The Twin Cities Jewish community is hosting a service of healing and support on Sunday afternoon, in the wake of Saturday's deadly attack on a synagogue in Pittsburgh. The victims were all adults and "ranged in age from 54 to 97 and included brothers and a husband and wife".

Williams said that the victims' families had been notified and are "in shock and grieving". The gunman killed 11 worshipers and wounded six others, including four police officers. We say no to antisemitism, racism, and Islamophobia.

Ciesielka served as Jerry's partner in his medical practice at UPMC Shadyside in Pittsburgh. Three remain in the hospital. "If somebody didn't come that was supposed to lead services, he could lead the services and do everything". He surrendered to authorities. [He] is scheduled to make his first court appearance Monday. "Never charged them", said Snider, chairman of the congregation's cemetery committee.

The mass killing is being investigated as a federal hate crime.

A law enforcement official told CNN that the suspect made anti-Semitic remarks after his arrest.

In a statement, Gab.com confirmed the profile belonged to Mr Bowers and also said it had suspended the account and contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation about it. I can't sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. I won't say all the time.

Bowers allegedly earlier claimed Jews were helping transport members of the migrant caravans.

Mr Jones said Mr Bowers was armed with an assault rifle and three handguns. Victims were killed at all three locations where services were going on. "Anti-Semitism "is nearly becoming normalized".

The United States is witnessing a sharp spike in anti-Semitic incidents, surging 57 percent from 2016 to 2017, to 1,986 from 1,267, according to the Anti-Defamation League, a civil rights group which has tracked anti-Semitism in the United States since the 1970s.

Lewis Hamilton , meanwhile, looked completely comfortable knowing he's in a ideal spot to win his fifth career Formula One championship.

He said he would visit Pittsburgh, but did not say when.

The brothers were from Squirrel Hill.

Officials are not sure why the suspect attacked this particular place of worship.

In a statement, Dayton called the shooting "a hateful act of violence committed against the Jewish community". We appreciate everything you do for this community and across the country.

They include several people who would have been children during the Holocaust and rise of Nazism.

Stephen Weiss was inside the synagogue when the shooting began. He described the 66-year-old as a "beloved family physician". "Just a sweet, sweet guy". "Always a hello, always a hug, always a smile". Sports nights, annual meetings.

President Donald Trump ordered flags on federal buildings to be flown at half-staff through Wednesday in "solemn respect" for the victims.

The campaign, which was kicked off on LaunchGood, debuted Saturday.

Daniel, 18, from Los Angeles and a gap year student at the Hartman Institute Hevruta program told the Post he wanted to do something to show his solidarity with the people of Pittsburgh. "We must unite to conquer hate". We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analyses from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World. "So I'd like to see him and other electeds across the aisle stand up and shut it down now".
