4 Dead, Several Others Shot At Pittsburgh Synagogue
KDKA ^ | 10/27/18

Posted on 10/27/2018 8:02:22 AM PDT by Simon Green

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Police from across the city of Pittsburgh are responding to an active shooting situation at the The Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill.

KDKA’s Andy Sheehan reports that at least four people have been confirmed dead, possibly as many as 7 to 8 could be dead.

Police have requested that residents stay inside their home as they have exchanged gun fire with a suspected gunman.

When officers arrived the gunman reportedly shot at them, forcing officers to use their vehicles as a shield.

Two police officers were reportedly shot.

The Synagogue was reportedly full of people for a Saturday service and police say they’ve received several calls from people barricaded inside the Synagogue.

Several people have been rescued, but police are still trying to rescue others.

Nearby Carnegie Mellon University was also reportedly on lockdown, students receiving texts telling them to stay inside.

Mayor Bill Peduto is rushing to the scene.

Sad but necessary that all synagogues and Jewish schools, as in France, will have to be guarded against such horrific, baseless attacks. This follows some savage beatings last week in Brooklyn against Orthodox men just walking along the streets who had done zero to provoke such attacks.

Have they blamed a MAGAJew or MAGAMuslim yet?
Have they connected Trump vitriol as the culprit to these attacks?

Pittsburgh is Sanctuary City thanks to Mayor Peduto. They love their rats in the Burgh. Local news is saying scene still active with eight dead.

Local news now saying one white male with a beard has been wounded and is in custody with another shooter on the run. Local talking head now mentions about all the mass shootings in the USA.

I’m listening to Fox and Ted Williams said he’s been told the cops are still shooting it out with the perp on the third floor of the synagogue.
