Bowers shot his victims with an AR-15, used in numerous nation's mass shootings, and three handguns, all of which he owned legally and had a license to carry, according to a law enforcement official who wasn't authorized to discuss the ongoing investigation, and who spoke Sunday on the condition of anonymity.

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).

Bowers was charged Saturday night in a 29-count complaint, including obstructing the exercise of religious beliefs resulting in death, using a firearm to commit murder, weapons offenses and charges alleging Bowers seriously injured police officers.

Police said the suspect had three handguns and an assault-style rife at the shooting.

Numerous speakers also addressed violence in Chicago, including last week's attack that injured six people leaving a funeral on the South Side.

Mr Bowers was taken to a hospital where he was listed in fair condition with multiple gunshot wounds. "We will work to eradicate hate from our community, ..."

"He is one of the finest people I've ever met", said Dr. Kenneth Ciesilka, in the article.

The Tree of Life Synagogue, whose congregation was founded more than 150 years ago, is located in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood that is historically the heart of Jewish life in greater Pittsburgh.

Chicago police did not receive any threats to the city or the vigil, but officers and K9s were deployed to the vigil to ensure a visible presence, officials said. "People need to talk and not be aggressive", she said. The groups have partnered with the Islamic Center of Pittsburgh in order to disburse the funds once the fundraiser ends.

In a statement, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum said it "reminds all Americans of the dangers of unchecked hatred". "It's not easy being away but I was a big part of the Jewish community there, I worked at Jewish day camps and I know people at the JCC and they opened it and provided grief counselors - they're doing what they can in a time of tragedy".
