'Pittsburgh shooter' Robert Bowers denies murdering 11 people at a synagogue

Mourners are seen holding candles in the aftermath of the mass shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill Pittsburgh Pennsylvania

It added 15 criminal counts total, including new hate-crime charges pertaining to the wounding of two worshippers and the use of unsafe weapons against a dozen police officers, including the four injured in a gunfight with the suspect.

Bowers also has been charged in state court with 11 counts of criminal homicide and 13 counts of ethnic intimidation, though authorities have said prosecution of the federal case will take precedence.

Hundreds of mourners turned out for the funeral, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Chatham University students hug during a visit Thursday, Nov. 1, 2018, to a makeshift memorial outside the Tree of Life synagogue dedicated to the 11 people killed October 27 while worshipping, in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh.

Officials say Bowers was armed with three Glock.357-caliber handguns and an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle, when he burst into what had been quiet Sabbath services and fired at congregants.

Funeral services are continuing to be held for the victims of Saturday's mass shooting at Pittsburgh's Tree of Life synagogue, where 11 Jewish worshipers were shot and killed in what has been described as the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in USA history.

Unlike his first court appearance earlier this week, Bowers walked into court Thursday morning.

The U.S. Department of Justice said Bowers faces a maximum possible penalty of death, or life without parole, followed by a consecutive sentence of 535 years' imprisonment.

Saudi sisters' bodies recovered from NYC riverbank
The women's bodies washed up along the banks of the Hudson River in Riverside Park, on the Upper West Side, Wednesday, Oct. 24. However, there is little detail about why they were in New York City and whether they have been there since late August.

Caskets are carried outside the Rodef Shalom Congregation, where the funeral for brothers Cecil and David Rosenthal was held.

Funerals for the 11 victims began Tuesday, the same day President Donald Trump his wife, Melania, his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner, attended memorials for the victims and visited the synagogue.

Imagine the horrors of this week for Rabbi Jeffrey Myers of the Tree of Life synagogue, and then marvel at his graciousness and composure in this CNN interview. Greenblatt flew in for the funerals of victims of Saturday's mass shooting at Tree of Life, which left 11 dead and six injured. If nothing else, pray for their recovery from this awful anti-Semitic attack, and pray that it's the last we'll see in our lifetimes. "Saturday was the most lonely day of my life".

"You could hear siren after siren", said school CEO Dan Kraut.

Bowers remained jailed without bail ahead of an arraignment scheduled for Thursday.

Pittsburgh prepared to hold three more funerals on Wednesday for Jewish victims of a shooting rampage at a synagogue that has become the focus of a fierce political debate about white nationalism and anti-Semitism ahead of hotly contested USA congressional elections next week.

A private funeral was also conducted for Daniel Stein, the 71-year-old men's club president at Tree of Life.
