11 Dead, Several Others Shot At Pittsburgh Synagogue

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Eleven people have been killed and a number of others injured after a shooting at The Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill on Saturday.
Police sources tell KDKA’s Andy Sheehan the gunman, Robert Bowers, walked into the building and yelled, “All Jews must die.” Sheehan’s sources also confirmed that eleven people have died. No children are among the deceased.
Bowers was reportedly armed with an AR-15 and three handguns.

The initial call to 911 was made around 9:54 a.m. and officers were dispatched to the scene within a minute.
When officers arrived, the gunman reportedly shot at them, forcing officers to use their vehicles as a shield. Bowers was said to be exiting the building when he encountered a uniformed officer and went back inside. Eventually, he was pinned down on the third floor and apprehended.
The SWAT team had been talking with the suspect, and he was crawling and injured. It is unclear the extent of his injuries. He was taken into custody about 20 minutes after the initial call to 911.
It is believed that Bowers acted alone.

“I will emphasize at this time that there appears to be no active threat to the community. We believe the subject that is responsible for this has been taken into custody,” Pittsburgh Public Safety Director Wendell Hissrich said.
Hissrich said at least six other people were injured, including several police officers. Two of the officers were among the first responders to the scene. At least one other was a member of the SWAT team.

The only fact I see is that its a MSM Headline on tv news. Everything else is subject to your level of education. If a tree falls in the woods will CNN be there? Only if they are being paid to promote how dangerous trees have become and they all have to be cut down. Anyone owning a tree is a criminal. This is our world...2018 Photos of the bodies are not proof... Those Honduran migrants should head right over to CROWDS ON DEMAND. Theyre looking for people with experience.
