Eleven people were killed on Saturday when a gunman stormed the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh’s historic Squirrel Hill neighborhood. On Sunday, the victims’ identities were revealed in a news conference. Among those killed were a pair of brothers and a married couple. The oldest was 97 years old, and the youngest 54. Authorities said the suspected gunman, Robert Bowers, made statements about genocide and killing Jewish people. Bowers has been arrested and is being treated for gunshot wounds at a hospital. He was charged late Saturday with 11 state counts of criminal homicide, six counts of aggravated assault and 13 counts of ethnic intimidation in what the leader of the Anti-Defamation League called the deadliest attack on Jews in U.S. history. Among the victims were brothers Cecil Rosenthal, 59, and David Rosenthal, 54, both of Squirrel Hill; Sylvan Simon, 86, and his wife, Bernice Simon, 84, both of Wilkinsburg; Rose Mallinger, 97; Joyce Fienberg, 75, of Oakland, city of Pittsburgh; Richard Gottfried, 65, of Ross Township; Jerry Rabinowitz, 66, of Edgewood Borough; Daniel Stein, 71, of Squirrel Hill; Melvin Wax, 86, of Squirrel Hil; and Irving Younger, 69, of Mount Washington.
