Multiple casualties in shooting at Pittsburgh synagogue

Multiple casualties in shooting at Pittsburgh synagogue

As officials try to put together a picture of the alleged Pittsburgh synagogue shooter, one focus of the investigation is his social media postings, the FBI said.

Canadian politicians offered their sympathies after an attack at a synagogue in Pittsburgh on Saturday left 11 people dead and six others wounded, while some police forces increased their presence at Jewish places of worship.

Police are reporting a suspect is in custody after a shooting that caused "multiple casualties" at a Pittsburgh synagogue on Saturday. His name is Robert Bowers.

PITTSBURGH, Pa. (AP)- Officials say a suspect for the shooting at a synagogue is in custody.

Trump said lawmakers "should very much bring the death penalty into vogue" and people who kill in places such as synagogues and churches "really should suffer the ultimate price".

Bowers is said to be a Pittsburgh resident. He was taken to a hospital for treatment of undisclosed injuries, authorities said. No children were killed, authorities said.

"It's one of the worst that I've seen and I've been on some plane crashes", Hissrich said.

"Apparently, an initial contact between the subject and the officers occurred, injuring two of the officers. Screw your optics, I'm going in", wrote Bowers, a heavy-set, white male.

The comment was posted on Gab, a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-based social networking service created as an alternative to Twitter.

"I think one thing we should do is we would stiffen up our laws with guns with the death penalty", Trump said.

Samsung, Apple fined over treatment of older-generation smartphone customers
The fine is tied to the "Samsung slow down" - the drop in performance smartphones sometimes show after receiving new updates. The authority also argued that Apple should have issued instructions about replacing the battery in the iPhone.

It comes amid a rash of high-profile attacks in an increasingly divided country, including the series of pipe bombs mailed over the past week to prominent Democrats and former officials.

Michael Eisenberg, the immediate past president of the Tree of Life congregation, said three congregations - Tree of Life, New Light and Dor Hadash - would have been holding simultaneous services in the building on a typical Saturday.

Scott Brady, the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, said that criminal charges would be filed against Bowers shortly - possibly the same day.

"It sends accurate security information to the leaders of those organizations and helps ensure that the right people are informed immediately", the statement said.

President Donald Trump called Saturday's shooting "devastating", saying: "It's a awful thing what's going on with hate in our country".

Trump told reporters later that the killings might have been prevented if there had been an armed guard in the building.

"When a site is explicitly allowing the perpetuation of hate, violence or discriminatory intolerance, we take immediate and decisive action", a PayPal spokesperson said in an email.

The Anti-Defamation League called it the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in the United States since 2014.

The Red Cross is providing mental health services at the Jewish Community Center on Forbes Avenue to those impacted by Saturday's shooting. A SWAT team had been talking with the suspect, and he was crawling and injured.
