JERSEY CITY, New Jersey (WABC) — One police officer was killed and three others were wounded, and there are five 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.
Two suspects, a man and a woman both dressed in black, then fled to the area of JC Kosher Supermarket on Martin Luther King Drive, where they continued firing at responding officers.
Police retreated and took up defensive positions, and hundreds of officers, SWAT units, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives descended on the scene.
