The suspect in the mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue expressed hatred of Jews during the rampage and told officers afterward that Jews were committing genocide and that he wanted them all to die, according to charging documents made public Sunday.Robert Gregory Bowers killed eight men and three women inside the Tree of Life Synagogue Saturday during worship services before a tactical police team tracked him down and shot him, authorities said in state and federal affidavits, which contained unreported details on the shooting and the police response.Bowers was charged with 11 state counts of criminal homicide, six counts of aggravated assault and 13 counts of ethnic intimidation in what the leader of the Anti-Defamation League called the deadliest attack on Jews in U.S. history.A message left with the federal public defender's office in Pittsburgh wasn't immediately returned.His neighbor, Chris Hall, said he never heard or saw anything to indicate that Bowers harbored anti-Judaic views or posed a threat.
