Three years ago, Robert Bowers went into a Jewish synagogue in Pittsburgh and opened fire on the congregants during their Sabbath morning service. The attack left eleven people dead and six others wounded.
Prior to the deadly attack, Bowers had been active on social media, where he was known for his white supremacist, antisemitic, and neo-Nazi views.
