Alleged Synagogue Shooter Robert Bowers ID’d As Anti-Semitic, Neo-Nazi, Holocaust Denier
Police say that Robert Bowers burst into the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, began firing and shouted: “All Jews must die,” notes CBS News.
Bowers, who was reportedly armed with a AK-47 and two pistols, then barricaded himself in a room at the synagogue before finally surrendering to police in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood.
According to Heavy.com, Bowers was a member of the “alt-right” version of Twitter, Gab.
Using the handle “One Dingo,” Bowers reportedly wrote, “jews are the children of satan. (john 8:44) — —- the lord jesus christ is come in the flesh.”
A few days before the shooting, Bowers reportedly wrote on Gab:

Bowers reportedly re-posted anti-immigrant and Holocaust denial posts:
