Federal prosecutors filed 29 charges against the suspect in a shooting that left at least 11 people dead at the Pittsburgh-area Tree of Life Synagogue Saturday morning, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania Scott W. Brady announced late Saturday.
Robert Bowers faces 29 counts, including 11 counts of use of a firearm to commit murder and 11 counts of obstruction of the exercise of religious beliefs resulting in death. He was wounded at the scene after exchanging gunfire with law enforcement officials.
