Eleven dead and six wounded leave the shooting in a Pennsylvania synagogue

Eleven dead and six wounded left the shooting that took place today in a synagogue in Pittsburg (Pennsylvania, USA), informed official sources.

“There have been eleven deaths as a result of this shooting, none of them has been a minor, and there were six wounded, including four police officers, which does not include the suspect,” the Director of the Services Security of Pittsburg, Wendell Hissrich.

The suspect, identified as Rob Bowers, 46, is under arrest, but was taken to a nearby hospital for medical treatment.

The special agent of the FBI Bob Jones confirmed that Bowers resides in Pittsburg and announced that in the next hours a meticulous registry of the house, the vehicle and the social networks of the suspect will proceed.

Jones described what happened as “hateful action” and said he had not seen such a terrible crime scene in his entire professional career.

The events took place around 10.00 local time (14.00 GMT) when Bowers agreed to the temple of the Congregation of the Tree of Life and began firing indiscriminately while shouting: “All Jews must die.”

The governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf, also present at the press conference, said that anti-Semitism “has no place” in his state.

“Any attack on a Pennsylvania community is an attack on the entire Pennsylvania community,” Wolf said.

The authorities believe that Bowers acted on his own, but do not rule out that someone else could have been involved in the planning of the attack, so they asked prudence to the residents of the area.

The president of the United States, Donald Trump, considered that the shooting “definitely” seems to be an anti-Semitic crime, at the same time that he lamented that these events “continue to happen” in the country.
