Trump Says Pittsburgh Synagogue Should’ve Had Armed Guards

He was armed with an assault rifle and at least three handguns, officials said.

After a shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh that caused "multiple casualties", D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has ordered heightened police presence at synagogues throughout D.C.

PITTSBURGH, United States (2nd UPDATE) - A heavily armed gunman opened fire during a baby-naming ceremony at a synagogue in the U.S. city of Pittsburgh on Saturday, October 27, killing 11 people and injuring six in the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in recent American history.

It was not immediately known how many people had been injured or killed, though Shapiro's statement appeared to show that at least two people had died.

"It's a awful, bad thing what's going on with hate in our country frankly, and all over the world", Trump told reporters.

Agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms were also reportedly responding to the scene.

"They should very much bring the death penalty into vogue", Trump said.

Jeff Finkelstein, CEO of Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh, told reporters that on a typical Saturday morning about 50 or 60 people worship at Tree of Life Synagogue. Three officers have been shot, but police provided no further details, as they are still clearing the Synagogue.

Justin Matase was returning home around 10.30am when he saw more than 30 police cars along Shady Avenue and Wilkins Avenue, according to the New York Times.

Lewis Ferguson headed in a corner 11 minutes from time to book Aberdeen's place in the final, where they will meet Celtic . I pick the players, I sign the players, I pick the game plan so I'll take responsibility for this.

The Tree of Life synagogue describes itself as "a traditional, progressive and egalitarian congregation".

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

Police have taken the assailant into custody, said Pittsburgh Public Safety Director Wendell Hissrich at a press briefing.

"Jones said the scene of Saturday's shooting at the synagogue was "the most horrific crime scene" he has seen" in 22 years with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. In a tweet, Mr Trump encouraged people to shelter in place and said "looks like multiple fatalities".

Speaking to reporters at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, he said of the lack of an armed guard: "They didn't have any protection". He says "all of us are wounded by this inhuman act of violence".

"I condemn the terror attack against a Pittsburgh synagogue and extend my heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims and to the American people", Erdoğan wrote on Twitter Saturday.

"This should not be happening in a synagogue".

"Anyone that does something like this to innocent people that are in temple or church, we've had so many incidents with churches".
