SYNAGOGUE KILLING: Known victims of Pittsburgh shooting

The names of the 11 people killed in Saturday’s attack on a synagogue in Pittsburgh have been released, with the oldest aged 97.

Two brothers and a husband and wife were among those killed. Six people were injured, including four policemen.

The suspect, Robert Bowers, 46, is in custody and faces 29 criminal counts in what is thought to be the worst anti-Semitic attack in recent US history.

Mayor Bill Peduto said this was the “darkest day of Pittsburgh’s history”.

President Donald Trump has called the attack a “wicked act of mass murder”.

The ages of the 11 victims ranged from 54 to 97.

Mayor Peduto said: “To the victims’ families and friends – we will be here to help you through this horrific episode – the darkest day of Pittsburgh’s history. We as a society are better than this, we know that hatred will never win out.”
