The Truth About the Pittsburgh Massacre
Saturday October 27th 2018, a gunman entered the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh.
The dead include a 97-year-old woman, a husband and wife, and two brothers.
The suspect Robert Bowers allegedly burst in through an open door, screaming anti-Semitic slogans and shooting.
He is a 46-year-old Pittsburgh resident, who is also accused of wounding six other people – including three police officers shot during a firefight.
The FBI has reported that Bowers was not previously known to law enforcement.
He was charged with 29 counts of federal crimes of violence and firearms offenses, federal prosecutors said late Saturday.
According to a Federal criminal complaint released Sunday, Bowers told a SWAT officer after being shot and captured: “They’re committing genocide to my people. I just want to kill Jews.”
