Pittsburgh authorities have released the identities of all 11 victims, aged 54 to 97, who were gunned down while worshiping at a synagogue on Saturday morning.

Joyce Fineburg, 75, Richard Gottfried, 65, Jerry Rabinowitz, 66, Cecil Rosenthal, 59, David Rosenthal, 54, Bernice Simon, 84, Sylvan Simon, 86, Daniel Stein, 71, Melvin Wax, 88, Rose Mallinger, 97, and 69-year-old Irvin Younger were identified as the 11 victims by Chief Medical Examiner Dr Karl Williams Sunday morning.

David and Cecil Rosenthal were brothers and Sylvan and Bernice Simon were husband and wife. Stein, who had recently become a grandfather, was identified as the first victim by relatives on Saturday.

Fellow members of the New Light Congregation say Wax was a pillar of the congregation, filling many roles there. Friend Myron Snider said Wax was a retired accountant who was unfailingly generous.

Robert Gregory Bowers killed the victims inside the Tree of Life Synagogue on Saturday during worship services before a tactical police team tracked him down and shot him, police said in an affidavit, which contained some previously unreported details on the shooting and the police response.

Bowers told officers that Jews were committing genocide and that he wanted them all to die, according to the charging document.

Calls began coming in to 911 from the synagogue just before 10am Saturday, reporting ‘they were being attacked,’ the document said.

‘We’re under fire. He’s got an automatic weapon and firing at us from the synagogue,’ one officer is heard saying.
