A gunman named Robert Bowers killed 11 people after he barged into Tree of Life synagogue Saturday and opened fire, shouting religious slurs.

A 97-year-old woman, two brothers in their 50s and a married couple in their 80s were among the 11 worshippers shot dead at a Pittsburgh synagogue during Sabbath prayers in the deadliest attack ever on America's Jewish community, officials said on Sunday (Oct 28).
