Suspect caught after eight reported killed in shooting at Pittsburgh synagogue

The Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh Pa

Officials identified the suspect in Saturday's shooting as 48-year-old Robert Bowers.

Eleven people were killed in Saturday's shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, according to Pittsburgh Public Safety Director Wendell Hissrich. The company said it disavows acts of terrorism and violence, but sees its mission as defending "free expression and individual liberty online for all people". "It is very bad".

Hissrich said authorities are treating the shooting as a federal hate crime and the FBI took control of the investigation. 'I can't sit by and watch my people get slaughtered.

"The governing body and law enforcement have protocols and procedures in place so we can work in tandem to keep our neighborhoods safe and keep residents informed", Young said in a prepared statement.

A social media post by Bowers yesterday morning said a Jewish refugee organization, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, "likes to bring invaders in that kill our people".

The Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA) said that there isn't any information suggesting an elevated threat in Canada, but that Toronto police and York Regional Police told them that they directed their front-line units to increase their presence around Jewish facilities. "Screw your optics, I'm going in", he wrote.

Police investigate suspicious package addressed to Robert De Niro in Tribeca
The president has branded the media the "enemy of the people" and hurled harsh, personal insults at others targeted in the plot. A package addressed to De Niro was sent to Tribeca Grill in Manhattan, where the actor both owns the restaurant and offices.

President Donald Trump tweeted he was aware of the situation in Pittsburgh and that law enforcement was on the scene.

President Trump had strong words on the subject of religious persecution following Saturday's deadly shooting in a Pittsburgh synagogue, calling the attack an "assault on humanity".

An attacker, reportedly carrying an AR-15 rifle and a Glock handgun, entered the Tree of Life Congregation Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and opened fire on those praying there.

Trump also doubled down on earlier calls to invoke the death penalty.

Trump also dismissed reporters' questions on whether gun laws ought to be examined in the wake of the shootings, USA Today reported. "You wouldn't think this would be possible in this day and age, but we just don't seem to learn from the past".

The suspect is in custody, said Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf, who was at the scene of the shooting according to local media.

Some of the newest features include the bionic chip, wireless charging and stronger glass protecting the iPhone from damage. The iPhone XS died after 9:41 hours in the same test, while the Max version went for nearly an hour longer at 10:38 hours.

"If they had some kind of a protection inside the temple maybe it could have been a much more different situation, they didn't", he said when asked about a possible link to USA gun laws. "Anybody that does a thing like this to innocent people that are in temple or in church ― we've had so many incidents with churches ― they should be suffering the ultimate price".

"Dangerous weapons are putting our citizens in harm's way".

Police arrested a suspect in the shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue, where congregants were attending a prayer service.

Jonathan Greenblatt, the CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, tweeted that the victims of the attack were "targeted" due to their religion.

"We send our deepest condolences to our Jewish brothers and sisters and pray for our nation's healing".

The Anti-Defamation League condemned the attack in a statement, saying it was "unconscionable for Jews to be targeted during worship on a Sabbath morning".
