Robert Bowers, 46, is accused of walking into the Tree of Life synagogue Saturday morning, making anti-Semitic remarks and opening fire on the crowd of worshippers inside.
Bowers allegedly tried to leave, but was confronted by authorities, who he fired upon too, injuring two police officers and one SWAT member. Police say Bowers suffered multiple gunshot wounds himself before being apprehended.
He is facing 29 charges, including 11 counts of using a firearm to commit murder and multiple counts of various hate crimes.
Squirrel Hill is standing together, strong and unified, as they reel from this horrific tragedy. Meanwhile, conversations about an apparent resurgence of anti-semitism in the United States and also Canada have started to surface.
