Neighbor: “most terrifying thing…how normal he seemed”


A neighbor of the man charged in the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre says the suspect kept to himself.

Chris Hall said Sunday that he never heard or saw anything to indicate that 46-year-old Robert Bowers harbored anti-Semitic views or posed a threat.

Authorities say Bowers killed eight men and three women inside the Tree of Life Synagogue on Saturday during worship services before a tactical police team shot and wounded him. Bowers faces state and federal charges.

Hall says nothing stood out about Bowers. He says “the most terrifying thing is just how normal he seemed.”

Six others were wounded in the attack, including four officers, one of whom remains in critical condition. Two worshippers also remain hospitalized, one of them in critical condition.
