JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — Six people, including a police officer and three bystanders, were killed in a furious gunbattle Tuesday that filled the streets of Jersey City with the sound of heavy gunfire for hours, authorities said.

The dead included two suspects, Jersey City Police Chief Michael Kelly said.

The shooting took place at two scenes, starting at a cemetery, where the officer was gunned down, and continuing at a kosher supermarket, where five more bodies were found, Kelly said.

“Our officers were under fire for hours,” the chief said.

He would not say exactly what set off the shooting but that he believes the officer who was killed was trying to stop some “bad guys.”

    • Considering that (1) they now come out and say the store was a targeted location [I wonder if the Yeshiva next door with over 100 kids was also a targeted location] and (2) police said they are certain the victims were not killed by the cops, I don’t think there is anything more the police could have done better.

      It could have been worse… If that is any consolation.

      • Are you serious? This was a botched up police scene, 4 hours? police sheriff FBI SWAT 100’s of personal and are waiting 4 hours outside, that’s their training? To give those bums to shoot everyone in the store, SWAT should have stormed that place.
