U. Pittsburgh Medical Center chaplain injured in Squirrel Hill synagogue attack

From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

Of the 17 people shot Saturday at the Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh’s Squirrel Hill neighborhood, four police officers and two others survived.

Among the latter two is Daniel Leger, 70, of Squirrel Hill, a nurse and UPMC chaplain, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette confirmed. He was in critical condition late Saturday afternoon after undergoing surgery at UPMC Presbyterian in Oakland, his brother Paul Leger said.

“He may be going into a second surgery. He has a number of surgeries ahead of him,” Paul Leger said. “But they did expect that his condition would be surviving.”

A UPMC doctor described the injury as a gunshot wound to the torso.
