A right-wing, anti-semitic shooter opened fire during a baby-naming ceremony at a Pittsburgh synagogue Saturday, killing 11 people and wounding six others, including four police officers, authorities said.
The FBI named the suspect as Robert Bowers, 46.
Bowers has an active license to carry a firearm and has made at least six known firearm purchases since 1996, a law enforcement official familiar with the investigation told CNN. On September 29, Bowers posted photos of his handgun collection on his Gab.com account, which included multiple clips and sights. Shortly before the shooting, Bowers posted on his Gab account that he “can’t sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. Screw your optics, I’m going in.”
Pittsburgh Police says there are ‘‘multiple casualties’’ in a mass shooting near a synagogue in Pittsburgh. The shooting was reported Saturday morning near the Tree of Life Synagogue in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood. Early reports say that 12 have been shot, including three police officers, and that eight are dead.
