Before Bowers social media accounts were deleted, movie director Robby Starbuck managed to screengrab several Gab and Twitter posts showing the suspected shooters hatred of Jews and President Donald Trump.

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

Being very clear for media picking this up, this man Robert Bowers was named on police scanner, found his profile, last post was this and his social media account was wiped while I was archiving it. His account was anti-Semitic conspiracies and anti-Trump posts/conspiracies. pic.twitter.com/uRNfWAEWLW

Another post from Pittsburgh Synagogue shooter Robert Bowers. His profile clearly illustrates that hes a Nazi, admired Hitler, hates Trump, believes Trump is controlled by Jews, he did not vote for Trump. Thats all I was able to archive before his profile was wiped. Sickening. pic.twitter.com/DPQfGuWDzY

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

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