PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Eight people have been killed and a number of others injured after a shooting situation at The Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill on Saturday.
KDKA’s Meghan Schiller reports that a suspect, a heavy-set white male with a beard, has surrendered. The SWAT team had been talking with the suspect, and he was crawling and injured. It is unclear the extent of his injuries.
KDKA sources confirm to Andy Sheehan that the suspect is 48-year-old Robert Bowers. It is believed that he acted alone.

8 Dead, Several Others Shot At Pittsburgh Synagogue

It is not that they happen, but when they happen and they just hit the important talking points for politicians: Attack Jews (which is the only time it is bad according to the Liberal, otherwise Israel can die), White guy screaming racist stuff and I am waiting to find the weapon used.  So these last days will be all about Gun Control.

Kudos go to President Trump for not bowing to the obvious easy escape route:

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — President Donald Trump says the outcome at the Pittsburgh synagogue would have been different if there was armed protection.

Before boarding Air Force One, Trump told reporters, “They had a maniac walk in and they didnt have any protection and that is just so sad to see. The results could have been much better.”

Trump: If Pittsburgh Synagogue Had Armed Guard, ‘Results Would Have Been Far Better’

I had in my mind that no self-respecting synagogue or temple would have services without armed (and sometimes) heavily armed) security.  I even know one Rabbi that not only carries, but was encouraged by cops and parishioners to do so and take a lot of extra training.

I guess it is not kosher to keep your people safe anymore?
