Following Saturday's shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Florida Gov. Rick Scott ordered the Florida Highway Patrol to increase patrols at religious institutions across the state.

The governor's office said FHP will work with local police and sheriff's offices on enhancing safety.

“The shooting at a synagogue in Pennsylvania was an act of pure evil and hatred," Scott said in a statement. "There is no place in America for intolerance and violence, and we will do everything in our power to protect Floridians who are peacefully gathered to worship."
