Active Shooter at Pittsburgh Synagogue

October 27, 2018 11:16 am

We are monitoring reports of an active shooter at a Pittsburgh synagogue. There are reports of fatalities and reports of two police officers being shot. But we’re in that early phase where there are conflicting reports and we need to wait for clearer confirmation of details. All that seems clear now is that the situation is on-going, that there are multiple casualties and likely fatalities among them. Await more updates.

MORE: The synagogue is the Tree of Life Synagogue. Local CBS affiliate is reported at least seven dead. The shooter has reportedly now surrendered after being injured himself.

MORE: CBS local affiliate now confirming at least 8 dead. Suspect/shooter described as white male with beard. There are multiple reports from journalists on Twitter quoting anti-Semitic statements by the shooter. This is hardly surprising given the target. But these reports appear to be going directly from police scanner/radio. So want to wait for more confirmation.
