The man suspected of shooting up a Pittsburgh synagogue Saturday morning, causing multiple fatalities and wounding several others, has been identified as Robert Bowers.

Before Bowers’ social media accounts were deleted, movie director Robby Starbuck managed to screengrab several Gab posts showing the suspected shooter’s hatred of Jews and President Donald Trump. (RELATED: Trump Reacts To ‘Devastating’ Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting)

“This monster is an unhinged anti-Semitic terrorist,” Starbuck tweeted.

The shooting took place at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh’s Squirrel Hill neighborhood, a predominately Jewish area close to downtown Pittsburgh, according to Fox News.

Bowers yelled “All Jews must die!” KDKA reported, and he was reportedly armed with two pistols and an AK-47.

An archive of Bowers’ disturbing posts on Gab, which has since lost its hosting provider, can be found here.
