Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto described the emotional state of his city following Saturday morning's shooting attack that killed 11 people attending services inside a Pittsburgh synagogue.

"Our heart is broken," Peduto told CNN's "State of the Union" anchor Jake Tapper. "We are a small city.  What affects one community affects all of us... And, right now, I would say that there's a shock that is over the city... But Pittsburgh's a strong city. We are a people that have a strong resilience.  And we will get through this."
