Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooter found guilty of federal hate crimes and other charges

Not surprisingly, a jury has found the shooter in the 2018 attack on the Tree of Life Congregation, a Pittsburgh synagogue, guilty on 63 criminal charges, including multiple hate crimes. The shooter, who committed the deadliest antisemitic attack in U.S. history, used an AR-15 in the attack. He was wounded and captured at the temple after a standoff with police. The jury now begins the sentencing phase, in which it will determine whether he faces the death penalty or life in prison.
