Baltimore Sun Sunday - - FRONT PAGE -

PITTS­BURGH — A man with a his­tory of mak­ing anti-Semitic and anti-im­mi­grant so­cial me­dia posts burst into a syn­a­gogue in Pitts­burgh and opened fire on Sat­ur­day morn­ing ser­vices that in­cluded a baby­nam­ing cer­e­mony, killing 11 peo­ple and wound­ing six more, au­thor­i­ties said.

The shoot­ing, which be­gan shortly be­fore 10 a.m. EDT, was prob­a­bly “the dead­li­est at­tack on the Jewish com­mu­nity in the his­tory of the United States” and is a wor­ry­ing new peak in vi­o­lence against Jewish Amer­i­cans in re­cent years, ac­cord­ing to the Anti-Defama­tion League, which has mon­i­tored anti-Semitism in the U.S. for more than a cen­tury.
