Deadly Jersey City shootout started with ‘targeted’ attack on kosher market

The recent Jersey City attack comes at a time where New York City is seeing a 22% increase in hate crimes, according to NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea.

Fulop has not elaborated on what the video shows, how it indicates the shooters targeted the market or what reason the suspects would have had to target the business.

Some local media reported the initial confrontation between the suspects and police near the Jersey City cemetery, about a mile away from the supermarket, was linked to a previous homicide investigation. The gunmen then drove a stolen rental van to another part of the city and engaged police in a lengthy shootout from inside the kosher market, where the five other bodies were later found. A suspected "incendiary device" was later found inside the van and removed from the scene, Kelly said.

New Jersey Transit said it was suspending bus service and Hudson-Bergen Light Rail service as officers continued to respond.

Jersey City Police Chief Michael Kelly said he believed the dead were all struck by gunfire from the suspects, who arrived at the scene in U-Haul truck and held police at bay around the store for hours in a deadly standoff.

Fulop on his Twitter account said he is Jewish and "proud to live in a community like Jersey City that has always welcomed everyone". Rabbi David Niederman, president and executive director of United Jewish Organizations of Williamsburg and Northern Brooklyn, also told reporters Wednesday that a non-Jewish man who worked at the store had also been killed. "She was a lady full of love for others, and unfortunately her life was cut so short", he said.

We are heartbroken at the loss of yet another police officer killed in the line of duty. -Top brass contacted The FBI, Port Authority Police, ATF, NYPD and a host of other agencies to assist -Tactical units in the scene took gunfire for hours as gunmen repeatedly fired at officers.

"I was standing by the salad bar in the grocery and I heard three shots, bullets shattered the glass of the grocery", shared one eyewitness via WhatsApp. "Tomorrow, we will announce additional measures", de Blasio tweeted Tuesday.

Police in New Jersey say a Jewish supermarket was the target of a gun attack which left six people dead on Tuesday, including the two suspects.

"REME" - unit is "focused on any trends and any signs of racially and ethnically motivated extremism", de Blasio said at a press conference Wednesday morning. Breaking into tears, Niederman said the was especially concerned about the impact on the young children at a Yeshiva that stands next to the deli.

"Together, we as a community can stamp out hatred and bigotry of all kinds", he said.

"Three sources say Anderson was a one-time follower of the Black Hebrew Israelite movement, a group of African Americans whose members believe they are descendants of the ancient Israelites and may adhere to both Christian and Judaic beliefs", NBC New York wrote. The wider Jersey City Jewish community, which Shames estimated to include around 10,000 people, was on edge this week with Jewish residents asking for more police presence at the area's synagogues.

"I didn't use the words 'anti-Semitic.' The motives are still part of the investigation", Shea told a reporter. There is a crisis of anti-Semitism in this city.

In response to the Jersey City shooting, de Blasio directed the NYPD to go into a "state of high alert" Tuesday night, increasing the presence of the department at places of Jewish worship, despite there now being no connection to any threats to the city, adding that the presence will be "large and consistent in the coming days".
