USA: Pittsburgh releases names of synagogue massacre victims

United States, Pittsburgh
October 28, 2018 at 16:38 GMT +00:00 · Published

The names of the victims of the Pittsburgh synagogue mass shooting were revealed during a press conference in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on Saturday.

Chief medical examiner for Allegheny County Dr. Karl Williams revealed the identities of the 11 people who were killed; a list mostly comprised of senior citizens. The names included: "75-year-old Joyce Fienberg of Oakland, 65-year-old Richard Gottfried of Ross Township, 97-year-old Rose Mallinger of Squirrel Hill, 66-year-old Jerry Rabinowitz of Edgewood, 59-year-old Cecil Rosenthal of Squirrel Hill, 54-year-old David Rosenthal, David and Cecil were brothers. 84-year-old Bernice Simon of Wilkinsburg, 86-year-old Sylan Simon of Wilkinsburg, Bernice and Sylvan were husband and wife, 71-year-old Daniel Stein of Squirrel Hill, 88-year-old Melvin Wax of Squirrel Hill and 69-year-old Irving Younger of Mount Washington."

Mayor of Pittsburgh Bill Peduto condemned the hate crime, vowing that he would work to “eradicate” it.

In light of the shooting, the mayor cast doubt on US President Donald Trump’s stance regarding increasing security levels with more guns, instead saying: "I think the approach that we need to be looking at is how we take the guns, which are the common denominator of every mass shooting in America, out of the hands of those that are looking to express hatred through murder."

Robert D. Bowers, armed with an AR-15-style rifle and multiple handguns, opened fire in the synagogue in Squirrel Hill as he shouted anti-Semitic slurs. The shooter was injured in an exchange of fire with police which left four officers and two others wounded, before being taken into police custody.

US President Donald Trump has condemned the attack, calling it an anti-Semitic act.
