Officials say Robert Bowers was armed with a rifle and three handguns when he walked inside the Tree of Life synagogue during Sabbath services Saturday morning and opened fire, killing 11 people and wounding six in what is believed to be the deadliest attack on Jews in US history.

PITTSBURGH - All 11 victims of the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh have been identified and their families notified, authorities said Sunday.

But Aaron, who was in town for a bat mitzvah celebration, had no way of knowing that marked the last time she would see Rosenthal, one of 11 people killed in the historic synagogue when a gunman opened fire during Saturday morning services. All of them were middle-aged or over, including two brothers and a 97-year-old woman.

Trump also told reporters he planned to travel to Pittsburgh this week. If convicted, the suspect could face the death penalty.

FBI Special Agent Robert Jones allege Bowers was armed with an assault rifle and three handguns.

An initial appearance in federal court is scheduled for Monday afternoon in Pittsburgh. "I've heard the conversation over the past year about how we should arm security guards in our schools", Peduto said.

He said he believed Mr Bowers was acting alone, adding: "We have no knowledge that he was known to law enforcement before today".

Mr Bowers had made many anti-Semitic posts online, including one early on Saturday.

At least 11 lives were lost during the Saturday mass killing at The Tree of Life Synagogue in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh.

"You have to talk to them in a way they understand", he said.

A social media post by Mr Bowers on Saturday morning said a Jewish refugee organisation, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, "likes to bring invaders in that kill our people".

US President Donald Trump condemned the attack, calling it a "wicked act of mass murder", that is "pure evil", and "something that is unimaginable".

A tactical team found Bowers on the third floor, where he shot two officers multiple times, an affidavit said.

He urged people to be more politically active to combat hateful rhetoric, and he encouraged Jewish people to attend services to show they can not be intimidated. I can't sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. "Screw your optics, I'm going in", wrote Bowers, a heavy-set, white male.

The family recently left for Pittsburgh, where they will attend funeral services on Tuesday, Gibbons said.

Steve Hunegs, executive director of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas, told MPR News on Saturday that while the attack happened hundreds of miles from Minnesota, it hits close to home in the state's Jewish community.
