The 11 victims of Saturday's deadly shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue ranged in age from 54-97 years old, according to authorities.
Karl Williams, the chief medical examiner of Pennsylvania's Allegheny County, read the victims' names Sunday during a press conference:

- Irving Younger, 69, Mount Washington
The victims include a husband and wife, as well as a pair of brothers, Williams told reporters.
At least 11 people were killed and six others wounded, including four police officers, after a gunman walked into the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh on Saturday morning and opened fire as he made comments about mass-killing Jews.
Federal prosecutors have charged shooting suspect Robert Bowers, 46, with 29 separate federal charges, including hate crimes. Of those charges, a majority are punishable by death.
Scott Brady, U.S. attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, said federal agents had recovered three Glock .357 handguns and a Colt AR-15 assault rifle after the incident. "During the course of his deadly assault on the people of the synagogue, Bowers made statements regarding genocide and his desire to kill Jewish people," Brady said.
Robert Jones, the FBI special agent in charge, said Bowers is believed to have acted alone but that the crime scene could take up to a week to investigate.
Bowers' first court appearance is scheduled for Monday at 1:30 p.m.
