  • The message posted on social media website Gab hours before Robert Bowers is alleged to have opened fire at a synagogue

Gunman Robert Bowers, 46, was arrested at the scene and has been charged with 30 state crimes and 29 federal ones.

Some complained that the confrontational, nationalistic rhetoric of US President Donald Trump has encouraged right-wing extremists and fed a surge in activity by hate groups. That's in accordance with a proclamation issued by President Trump.

Mr Jones said Mr Bowers was armed with an assault rifle and three handguns.

The two exchanged gunfire, he said, and Bowers reentered the building before a police tactical squad arrived. After a shootout, he surrendered. Brady told a news conference that Bowers was to make his first court appearance on Monday afternoon before a federal judge in Pittsburgh. The oldest was a 97-year-old woman, Rose Mallinger, and the youngest a 54-year-old man, David Rosenthal, who died with his brother Cecil, 59. Two of the six people injured were in critical condition.

"I think people in my community are scared right now. Screw your optics, I'm going in", wrote Bowers, a heavy-set, white male.

The comment was posted on Gab, a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-based social networking service created as right-wing alternative to Twitter.

The mass shooting sparked security alerts at houses of worship around the country and condemnation from politicians and religious leaders.

At least 11 lives were lost during the Saturday mass killing at The Tree of Life Synagogue in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh.

"And even if you weren't friends with them, you know them", she continued.

Oil prices steady after stock markets plunge
Front-month Brent crude oil futures were at $76.72 a barrel at 0320 GMT, 28 cents, or 0.4 per cent, above their last close. EIA estimated that USA crude oil production last week was 10.9 million barrels per day, the same from the previous week.

They include several people who would have been children during the Holocaust and rise of Nazism.

The police affidavit says calls began coming in to 911 just before 10 a.m. Saturday, reporting "they were being attacked".

"We've seen a marked uptick in anti-Semitic harassment of political figures and other individuals simply based on their faith", Jonathan Greenblatt, the chief executive and director of the ADL, said on NBC's Meet the Press.

Calling the shooting an "evil anti-Semitic attack", Trump ordered flags at federal buildings throughout the United States to be flown at half-staff in honor of the victims.

In the city on Saturday night, mourners held a candlelit vigil for the victims under light rain.

The groups say they are partnering with the Islamic Center of Pittsburgh to distribute the funds. A man suspected of bursting into a Pittsburgh synagogue during a baby-naming ceremony and gunning down 11 people has been charged with murder, in the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in recent USA history.

"Our hearts, our prayers and our thoughts are with the people of Pittsburgh - both the Jewish community in Pittsburgh and the greater Pittsburgh community".

Trump proposed similar measures in the aftermath of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., where 17 people were killed.
