Amy Schumer, Ellen DeGeneres and More Mourn Deadly Synagogue Shooting: ‘My Heart Is Broken’

As news continues to surface about the Pittsburg synagogue shooting that has left 11 people dead and six injured, celebrities are mourning the loss of life and offering their condolences.

The shooting took place at the Tree of Life Synagogue in the Squirrel Hill section of the city, the Pittsburgh Public Safety Department announced on Twitter. The department added that it will be prosecuted as a hate crime and the FBI will be leading the investigation.

No children were injured in the shooting, Pittsburgh Public Safety Director Wendell Hissrich announced at a press conference.

A law enforcement official confirmed to PEOPLE the suspect is Robert Bowers, 46. Police sources told KDKA the shooter yelled, “All Jews must die” after entering the synagogue during the Saturday morning Shabbat service.

“My heart is broken for the victims and loved ones of everyone affected by the shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh,” wrote comedian Amy Schumer, who recently announced she’s pregnant with her first child.

Actor Joe Manganiello, who was born nearby in Mt. Lebanon, Pennsylvania, added, “My thoughts are back home today with the people of Squirrel Hill, Pittsburgh.”

Without specifically mentioning the tragic shooting, television host Ellen DeGeneres made a call for everyone, no matter their political differences, to support one another.

“Today, I send out love to each and every one of you reading this. Every single one of you. We are one world. We all need love. We all want comfort. Let’s give it to each other,” she wrote.

In addition to honoring those who had lost their lives, some celebrities also spoke out against President Donald Trump.

When asked by reporters on Saturday morning whether the shooting should make lawmakers across the county want to revisit existing gun safety laws, Trump replied that the tragedy had “little to do with it,” CNN reported.

He went on to argue, “If there was an armed guard inside the temple, they would have been able to stop him.”

Vehemently disagreeing, former One Direction member Niall Horan argued that the better solution would be for there to be “no guns at all.”

“Trump kept saying in his chat with reporters that if there was an armed guard inside the synagogue that the ‘numbers’ would have been a lot lower. The fact is if there was no guns at all, there wouldn’t have been a shooter in the first place,” he wrote. “Get a grip.”

Outspoken Trump critic Bette Midler wrote: “To the families of those who died in the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh, my deepest and sincere sympathies. This horror is escalating day by day. If only we had LEADERSHIP that would actually take steps to stop it.”

Other celebrities also urged people who were upset by gun violence to remember to vote in the upcoming mid-term elections, in order to increase the likelihood that politicians who want stricter gun safety laws get elected.

“Sending love to every single one of you who feels targeted by this administration. i’m with you. VOTE NOVEMBER 6TH,” wrote actress Zoe Kazan.

“The guns are the long arm of this racist, sexist, anti-Semitic, anti-LGBT administration. the laws & judges being put in place are the longest arm. vote. them. Out,” she added in a separate tweet.

This Is Us star Mandy Moore also urged anybody “feeling helpless and frustrated by this news” to vote in the upcoming midterm elections.

“My heart goes out to all those affected by gun violence today and every day. Feeling helpless and frustrated by this news too? VOTE Nov 6th. VOTE. Use your voice,” she wrote, including #GunSenseCandidates.

Trump has condemned the shooting as an act of anti-Semitism.

The suspect was taken into custody after surrendering to police, according to the Associated Press. City Councilwoman Erika Strassburger said the suspect was barricaded by police in the building prior to surrendering and that he was taken to the hospital, the New York Times reported.

The Pittsburgh Public Safety Department tweeted, “Families of shooting victims can call 412-432-4400 for news of their loved ones. A Victims Assistance Center has been set up at Chatham University, Berry Hall, 106 Berry Street.”

Eiffel Tower Goes Dark To Mourn Victims Of Stockholm Attack

At midnight in Paris, the Eiffel Tower went dark to mourn the lives lost during Friday’s suspected terrorist attack in Sweden’s capital.

At least four people were killed and more than a dozen injured after a vehicle drove into a crowd of people at a shopping district in Stockholm. 

“Sweden has been attacked,” Prime Minister Stefan told news reporters on Friday. “Everything points to the fact that this is a terrorist attack.”

This is the second time this week the Eiffel Tower has shut off its lights to show respect and solidarity with a country reeling from tragedy. The tower went dark Tuesday in response to an explosion that killed 14 people and injured 50 others in a subway in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo called Friday for the Eiffel Tower’s lights to be switched off earlier than scheduled.

“Horror struck Sweden at its heart today,” Hidalgo tweeted. “All my sympathy goes to the victims and their families.”

The Eiffel Tower’s lights are typically turned off every night at 1 a.m., according to the tower’s website. But sometimes the lights are shut down earlier in recognition of a terrorist attack or to raise awareness of various issues. 

When a terrorist rammed pedestrians with his vehicle and stabbed a guard in London last month, Paris shut off the Eiffel Tower’s lights at midnight in honor of those killed. The lights were turned off at 8 p.m. Dec. 14 to call attention to the humanitarian crisis in Syria and in 2015 to mourn the victims of the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris.

Fans, Music Greats Mourn Loss Of Mr. Rock ‘N’ Roll Chuck Berry

Fans and musicians around the globe mourned the death of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s wild founding father Chuck Berry at the age of 90.

Instead of a wish for Berry to rest in peace, the estate of famed guitarist Bo Diddley tweeted a message to the music legend to “rock in power.” The estate of John Lennon — whose own music was inspired by the rhythm pioneer — posted a quote from the late Beatle hailing Berry as “another name” for rock ‘n’ roll. 

Berry’s rock anthems like “Johnny B.Goode,” “Roll Over Beethoven” and “Maybelline” set the stage for future generations of fans and countless budding musicians pinning their hopes on playing the guitar like Berry could.

Rocker Huey Lewis honored Berry as “maybe the most important figure in all of rock and roll. His music and his influence will last forever.”

Keith Urban thanked Berry for his “poetry, passion and potency.”

The Jacksons tweeted: “Chuck Berry merged blues & swing into the phenomenon of early rock ‘n’ roll. In music, he cast one of the longest shadows. Thank You, Chuck.”

Writer Stephen King said Berry’s death “breaks my heart.”

The Rolling Stones have said they are “deeply saddened” by the death of Chuck Berry, describing him as a “true pioneer of rock ‘n’ roll and a massive influence on us.”

Clarification: This article has been updated to reflect that Diddley’s Twitter account is not the guitarist himself (he died in 2008), but that of his estate.
