MCALLEN – A Rio Grande Valley Jewish congregation wants to reassure its safety following the deadly shooting in Pittsburgh.

The alleged gunman, 46-year-old Robert Bowers, is facing 29 federal charges, including hate crimes, after opening fire during a service Saturday and killing 11 people.

The Temple Emanuel congregation in McAllen says they’re reviewing their security equipment to make sure the tragedy up north doesn’t deter attendance.  

KRGV’s Angelo Vargas spoke with the temple’s president on how they plan to help victims.

A Valley bishop also offered their support after the weekend shooting.
