The massacre at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, the worst hate crime against Jews in U.S. history, has also produced moments of hope in the past two days, as U.S. media reported that Muslim organizations have launched a mass-funding campaign to raise money for the victims and their families.
They victims - three women and eight men, all from Pittsburgh and the city's suburbs - ranged in age from 54 to 97, and included two brothers and one married couple.
Gunman Robert Bowers, 46, was arrested at the scene and has been charged with 30 state crimes and 29 federal ones.
Police say the suspect in the deadly mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue told officers that Jews were committing genocide and that he wanted them all to die.
Bowers brought three Glock handguns and an AR-15 assault rifle into the synagogue, all of which he used in the massacre, Williams said.

In previous mass shootings, Trump has at times said he would consider tightening gun laws but overall has called for more armed guards in places such as schools.
Authorities believed the suspect entered the synagogue, murdered the worshippers and was leaving when he encountered a uniformed police officer, Jones said.
Mr Bowers had made many anti-Semitic posts online, including one early on Saturday.
The oldest victim was identified as 97-year-old Rose Malinger of Squirrel Hill, the heavily Jewish neighbourhood in which the synagogue is located.
The two exchanged gunfire, he said, and Bowers reentered the building before a police tactical squad arrived.
Numerous speakers also addressed violence in Chicago, including last week's attack that injured six people leaving a funeral on the South Side.
"I can't sit by and watch my people get slaughtered", Bowers allegedly wrote before the shooting.
"On a day like today, the door is open, it's a religious service, you can walk in and out", he said. His family is going to miss him terribly and I am going to miss him.
On Saturday, Mr Trump called the shooting an act of pure evil and called on Americans to rise above hatred.
Standing in the crowd, Rachael, 22 from Pittsburgh said "I think it's wonderful they are supporting Pittsburgh".
The emerging evidence strongly suggests that the attack was motivated by anti-Semitism and was the deadliest against the Jewish community in the history of the US, as per the Anti Defamation League, a Jewish non-governmental organisation.
