PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Defense lawyers for the man accused of opening fire at the Tree of Life synagogue want federal prosecutors to produce evidence showing that law enforcement has been monitoring his online activities.
Robert Bowers’ defense attorneys in particular want to know if anyone saw his activities on Gab in the months leading up to the shooting. His defense lawyers also want to know if anyone was monitoring another Gab user who was communicating with Bowers.
Bowers is accused of killing 11 people and injuring many more in the Squirrel Hill synagogue in October 2018.
