A gunman opened fire on a Pittsburgh synagogue Saturday morning during Sabbath services, killing at least eight people and injuring others, according to local news station KDKA.

Police reportedly received calls from several people inside the Tree of Life Synagogue located in Squirrel Hill. I can't sit by and watch my people get slaughtered.

President Donald Trump tweeted Saturday morning that he was watching the events unfold. Dor Hadash, a third, smaller group, was gathered in the rabbi's study to the side of the Tree of Life' s congregation.

It was not clear what the condition of the officers was.

"It is imperative that the neighbors in the community surrounding the Tree of Life synagogue stay in their houses and shelter in place", Lando said. Tree of Life had Shabbat services scheduled from 9:45 a.m.to 12:00 p.m., according to the synagogue's website.

The active shooter was reported to be near the Tree of Life Synagogue, and multiple victims have been reported so far.

Trump ended the tweet by saying "God Bless All!". It remains unclear if there are further casualties inside.

At least four people were killed in in the USA city of Pittsburgh on Saturday after police were called to an "active shooter", reportedly near a Jewish synagogue. The website says that the congregation was founded "more than 150 years ago" and is a "conservative Jewish congregation" but "is also progressive and relevant to the way we live today".

Earlier this year after a shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School left 17 dead, Trump said teachers carrying concealed guns could stop attacks.

It remains unclear if the gunman, who was wearing a green jacket and blue jeans, has been removed from the building or not. The assailant is believed to have shot at police as they arrived.

The BBC's Dan Johnson in Washington said the shootings come at a tense time in the United States, after a week in which mail bombs were sent to critics of Mr Trump, ahead of crucial mid-term elections next month. And so I say to you: "nor oyf simches!" "This should not be happening in a synagogue".

He added: "Beware of active shooter".

Multiple people were shot inside a Pittsburgh synagogue Saturday morning, including three police officers, and authorities confirmed multiple fatalities. Looks like multiple fatalities. He said he had spoken with local leaders and would provide resources to help law enforcement and first responders with the crisis.
