Pittsburgh police responded Saturday morning to an active-shooter situation at the Tree of Life Synagogue in a heavily populated residential area in Squirrel Hill that has left multiple people dead, according to area reports. A suspect, identified as 46-year-old Pittsburgh resident Robert Bowers, reportedly surrendered to police.

Bowers was said to have posted numerous messages of racial hatred on social media, including one as recently as Saturday morning, the Jewish sabbath, saying, in part: “Screw your optics. I’m going in.”

CBS News reported that the shooter shouted, “All Jews must die,” during the attack. He was said to have been armed with an AR-15–style rifle along with more than one handgun.
