Update (1 pm ET): Live network coverage of Saturday’s shooting has concluded, but updates about the situation are still trickling in as police around the country react to the incident. In New York City, the NYPD is deploying additional officers to Jewish centers and synagogues throughout the city following an active shooter situation at a Pittsburgh synagogue.

Police said there are “multiple casualties” after reports of an active shooter at Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh Saturday morning. A suspect is now in custody. Heavy weapons teams, including the officers from the Critical Response Command and the Strategic Response Team, will patrol Jewish houses of worship across the city. The NYPD noted that there is no current threat, according to ABC.
