CBS now reports that at least eight have been shot after a gunman walked into The Tree of Life Synagogue in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh, PA and yelled "All Jews must die!" before opening fire.
Authorities say that a suspect, a white male in his 40s has been arrested but no further details have been released. When police arrived on the scene, the suspect then opened fire on the responders and shot at least three.
"Police have requested that residents stay inside their home as they exchanged gun fire with a suspected gunman," according to CBS. The shooting took place during weekly Shabbat services at the conservative Jewish Synagogue.
President Donald J. Trump tweeted that he is "watching the events unfolding in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania." and that those in the are should remain sheltered.
Watching the events unfolding in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Law enforcement on the scene. People in Squirrel Hill area should remain sheltered. Looks like multiple fatalities. Beware of active shooter. God Bless All!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 27, 2018
CBS reports that "at least four people have been confirmed dead, possibly as many as 7 to 8 could be dead" after a shooter opened fire at The Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hil in Pittsburgh, PA.
According to local media, "Police have requested that residents stay inside their home as they have exchanged gun fire with a suspected gunman."
Among those shot are least two police officers, but it is unclear whether not they are among the deceased.
Based on initial reports, it appears the gunman barricaded those inside the Synagogue before ambushing police as they arrived on scene. It is unclear who the shooter is or what possible motives he or she may have had.
This story will be updated as details come in.
Motives unclear ...hmmm
Only 10 more mass-shooting days until Midterms!
Wonder how many more October surprises coming. Someone I read on this site predicted a mass slaughter before the election.
Well, we all knew there would be another shooting or major act of terrorism (domestic/foreign) prior to the election. Tragic in any event.
Yep, “Bomb Guy” didn’t work, so now it’s back to the old “Tried and True.”
Ouch! (but funny)
The motive does appear to be hate for Jews. What we don’t know yet is the characteristics of the shooter.
There are two forces at work in America that cause these sort of events.
1) Hatred from the left, and
2) Prodding by Deep State operatives who specialize in Manchurian Actors.
There was a fellow on FR some time back who admitted that he did the second item, for a three-letter agency, but his efforts were confined to foreign countries. He has since passed on, but a record of his conversation with me still exists.
So, #2) is possible. In fact, I think the Florida Bomber might have been victim to this treatment. Everything is too OFF about that case. Acme-Roadrunner bombs, a van covered with recently-applied (unfaded) Trump stickers....
And 1), above well, that showed up today.
Between those two factors, predicting what I did was 100% easy.
Between the rage of the left, and the coordination of the Deep State, I expect one or two more mass shootings between now and election day. In fact, I would not be surprised if one of the shootings occurs at a polling place. The Deep State hasnt tried that one before.
Possible suspect (may be more than one) is an anti-Trump and anti-semitic white male.
He is named on the Chans, and if those reports are correct, he also has a long and varied police record (drugs, theft, etc.)
See, see! That mofo Kavanaugh again drinking them beers!
This is what happens when you don’t drain the swamp and refill it with Chris Wray and Rod Rosenstein types.
Next, a shooting at a black church.
I expect two more orchestrated mass shooting events before election day, and I’m starting to suspect one of them will be orchestrated at a polling place on election day.
They are not sure who did it ... but CNN says the suspect reportedly dropped a MAGA hat ... now who done it?
Have any Democrats gone on TV yet, pushing gun control yet again?
