"The fact that this attack took place during a worship service makes it even more heinous", US Attorney Scott Brady said.

An initial appearance in federal court is scheduled for Monday afternoon in Pittsburgh.

The area around Squirrel Hill will remain closed for up to one week, said Endell Hissrich, Pittsburgh's public safety director.

The suspect in Saturday's mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue is a 46-year-old local man named Robert Bowers who posted virulent antisemitic messages on social media filled with slurs and conspiracy theories.

"There's a tight-knit community that has supported the Rabinowitz family and we will continue to support the Rabinowitz family", he said.

He also called the shooting a wicked act of pure evil, called on Americans to rise above hate, and ordered U.S. flags at the White House and public buildings to be flown at half-staff. "Our Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, said: "Show mercy to those on earth, and the One in the Heavens will show mercy to you.' The Quran also teaches us to 'Repel evil by that which is better" (41:34)", the organizations tweeted.

Trump told reporters the killings might have been prevented if there had been an armed guard at the temple.

Chicago police did not receive any threats to the city or the vigil, but officers and K9s were deployed to the vigil to ensure a visible presence, officials said.
