"Pittsburgh is a strong town. We are a resilient city. We have been knocked down and we have found ways to stand back up and we've always done it in one way or working together to the victim's families to the victims friends. We are here as a community of one for you. We will be here to help you through this horrific episode. We'll get through this darkest day of Pittsburgh's history by working together Squirrel Hill is the most diverse neighborhood in all of western Pennsylvania. People choose to live there because of the diversity of the community the Jewish community is the backbone. It is part of the fabric of Pittsburgh and we will be there in all communities to support our friends in the Jewish community."
3. SOUNDBITE (English) Jeffrey Finkelstein, Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh
"This is an awful awful period for our Jewish community and and especially for the families who've been affected and it's real when once you hear the names we're going to do everything we can to help the families. We're in the process of doing that now and we'll be there for them and be there to help our Jewish community in the Pittsburgh region heal from this."
4. SOUNDBITE (English) Scott Schubert, Pittsburgh Police Chief
"I still want to praise the officers for what they did. I mean they ran into danger. They ran into gunfire to help others. Some of that's training some of that's experience but it's their inner core that wants them to help others that wants to save lives and they did that yesterday. So we want to praise them for that. The four officers were injured. One was released yesterday. We're praying one will be released today. And then the other two have a little bit more that that needs to be done."
5. SOUNDBITE (English) Robert Jones, F.B.I. Special Agent in Charge/Pittsburgh
"Last night at approximately 9:00 PM Robert Bowers was formally taken into federal custody following the issuance of an arrest warrant by a federal magistrate judge here in the Western District of Pennsylvania. His presidency still in the hospital following surgery and under guard. At this point we have nothing to indicate that Bowers had accomplices. But again we are in the early stages of this investigation."
Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto on Sunday called Saturday's shooting rampage at a synagogue it the "darkest day of Pittsburgh's history."
The suspect in the mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue expressed hatred of Jews during the rampage and told officers afterward that Jews were committing genocide and he wanted them all to die, according to charging documents made public Sunday.
Robert Gregory Bowers killed eight men and three women inside the Tree of Life Synagogue on Saturday during worship services before a tactical police team tracked him down and shot him, authorities said in state and federal affidavits, which contained some unreported details on the shooting and the police response.
"I just want to kill Jews," Bowers told an officer, according to one of the documents.
Officials released the names of all 11 victims during a news conference Sunday, all of them middle-aged or elderly. The victims included a pair of brothers and a husband and wife.
