A suspect was in custody late Saturday morning after a fatal shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh left multiple casualties, including three wounded police officers, according to the Associated Press.
While police officials have not confirmed any information about casualties or suspects, dispatchers on police radios mentioned multiple “bodies.”
They also mentioned an officer shot — possibly in the hand — being evacuated from the building.
It’s unclear when or how the incident began. The suspect spoke multiple of killing Jews before surrendering to police around 11 a.m., according to police radio traffic.
Dispatchers said he had multiple pistols on his person.
