Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting Anniversary

Tuesday marks the second anniversary of the mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue that left 11 people dead.

Six others were hurt including four law enforcement officers when police say a man opened fire inside the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh’s Squirrel Hill neighborhood.

It remains the deadliest attack on the Jewish community in United States history.

The victims ranged in age from 54 to 97.

All were in the building attending either Shabbat services or a Torah study session.

Prayer services and memorials are planned to honor the victims of the shooting including one on Nov. 5, which corresponds to the anniversary date on the Jewish calendar.

Robert Gregory Bowers, 46, is awaiting trial for the massacre and other related hate crimes.
