At least four dead in shooting at Pittsburgh synagogue

At least four dead in shooting at Pittsburgh synagogue

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf said he was meeting with law enforcement officials at the scene of the rampage shortly after noon Saturday, roughly two hours after the incident occurred.

Law enforcement sources told CBS News that the suspect is a 48-year-old man named Robert Bowers, and local CBS affiliate KDKA reported that he shouted "all Jews must die" while opening fire.

According to officials at least 10 people are dead.

An active shooter walked into the Tree of Life Congregation Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and opened fire, police services reported.

It was not immediately known how many people had been shot, whether there were any fatalities or what the shooter's motive was.

"They didn't and he was able to do things that unfortunately he shouldn't have been able to do", Trump told reporters before getting on Air Force One to fly to Indianapolis for a farmers' convention.

"While the nation awaits further details of what occurred, initial reports suggest that this senseless act of gun violence was an anti-Semitic attack and we stand together with the Jewish community in this hard time as we always have before".

"If they had protection inside, the results would have been far better", President Trump said when his plane touched down at Joint Base Andrews. The Squirrel Hill area is a heavily Jewish neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Finkelstein said. They tried to evacuate those who remained inside the building after they had rescued several people.

Police said the gunman, a heavy-set white male with a beard, surrendered and is in custody.

Jones said the suspect went back into the synagogue to hid from SWAT officers after exiting the place of worship.

Chattanooga Mayor Berke also tweeted.

Police spokesman Chris Togneri said police have no more information at this time because they were still trying to clear the building and determine if any more threats exist. One officer said the shooter claimed to be heading to his vehicle when he "engaged officers responding".

President Donald Trump tweeted Saturday morning that he was watching the events unfold.

The city's Carnegie Mellon University sent a text message alerting recipients of a police operation in the Wilkins and Shady avenues area, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Pittsburgh police Commander Jason Lando warned local residents, in an impromptu news conference at the scene: "Do not come out of your home right now, it is not safe".

'Looks like multiple fatalities.
