The deadly mass shooting that unfolded Saturday morning in Pittsburgh saw a nation glued to their televisions and social media outlets as the scene unfolded before us. Four to eight people have been confirmed dead, 12 more injured, including three police officers. The president was quick to release a message as he did his routine Saturday morning Fox News binge.
Trump tweeted this:
Watching the events unfolding in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Law enforcement on the scene. People in Squirrel Hill area should remain sheltered. Looks like multiple fatalities. Beware of active shooter. God Bless All!
