A crowdfunding campaign by two Muslim American groups has raised nearly $100,000 for the surviving victims of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting and the relatives of the 11 killed.

One of the Pittsburgh synagogue victims had just become a grandfather - and had been loving his new role, a grieving relative told The Post on Sunday.

The suspect - identified as a 46-year-old Robert Bowers - reportedly yelled "All Jews must die" as he sprayed bullets into the Tree of Life synagogue during Sabbath services on Saturday before exchanging fire with police, in an attack that also wounded six people.

Slain Daniel Stein, 71, was a dad-of-two, and his 1-year-old grandchild, Henri, was "the love of his life", said the man's nephew, Steven Halle.

The 29 charges against Bowers include obstruction of religious beliefs resulting in death and obstruction of religious beliefs resulting in bodily injury to a public safety officer.

On Thursday morning, a ninth package was discovered - addressed to former Vice President Joe Biden - shortly after another package was sent to actor Robert De Niro's Manhattan restaurant.

Bowers brought three Glock handguns and an AR-15 assault rifle into the synagogue, all of which he used in the massacre, Williams said.

Mr Bowers was taken to a hospital where he was listed in fair condition with multiple gunshot wounds.

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.

He said authorities believed the suspect entered the synagogue, murdered the worshippers and was leaving when he encountered a uniformed police officer. "Anybody that does a thing like this to innocent people that are in temple or in church - we've had so many incidents with churches - they should be suffering the ultimate price".

Mr Bowers had made many anti-Semitic posts online, including one early on Saturday.

"And even if you weren't friends with them, you know them", she continued. "Screw your optics, I'm going in", wrote Bowers, a heavy-set, white male.

Trump, who quickly branded Saturday's shooting an act of pure evil and called on Americans to rise above hatred, was already facing similar criticism ahead of the Nov 6 congressional elections following a spate of pipe bombs mailed last week to some of his prominent critics.

Other vigils were held across Canada including in Montreal, Halifax and Vancouver.

The groups say they are partnering with the Islamic Center of Pittsburgh to distribute the funds.
