One police officer was killed and three others were wounded, and there are multiple people dead inside a grocery store following a wild shootout and standoff in Jersey City Tuesday afternoon.
Authorities say the incident started at Bay View Cemetery just after noon, with an officer wounded in the shoulder, and was possibly related to a drug deal gone bad. Up to two suspects then fled to the area of JC Kosher Supermarket on Martin Luther King Drive, where they continued firing at responding officers and possibly others.
The massive response included resources from neighboring municipalities, as well as the FBI. Officials said two suspects appeared to be neutralized, and a robot was sent inside the store with officers following.
An official number has not been released, but authorities confirmed multiple people had been killed inside. It appeared that the gunmen were among those found dead.
