Armed criminals in New Jersey lead to murder of 3 people at kosher supermarket

A tragedy occurred in the Jersey City area:
Hours after gunfire that started in a cemetery and ended in a shootout at a kosher supermarket here left six dead on Tuesday, there were more questions than answers.

As of Tuesday night, the crime scene was cordoned off, keeping onlookers far from the scene. Some two dozen area residents, several reporters and many more police vehicles lingered outside the JC Kosher Supermarket on Martin Luther King Drive, on the western side of Jersey City. Some of the residents took video or livestreamed the scene on Facebook.

Investigators believe that two young gunmen – one possible third accomplice escaped the violence – found their way into the supermarket randomly, not as part of a hate crime or terrorism. They shot and killed a police officer in a nearby cemetery before holing up in the market in the Greenville neighborhood and exchanging fire with several more officers. The gunmen were killed in the lengthy shootout.

It was an ordeal that disturbed the heart of a small Orthodox Jewish community of nearly 100 families, most of whom moved from the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn over the past few years.

[...] Officials have not released any specific information about the suspects or the civilian victims, but Levitin says he spoke with someone who was wounded in the shooting but escaped through the back of the store. The witness told him that he saw the cashier – the wife of the store’s owner – fall down injured. He saw another customer also sustain serious injuries.
This is more bad tidings at a time when antisemitism is at record highs, and all the Democrats care about is impeaching Donald Trump, not stopping violent criminals like these fiends who tore up the market.

Update: as reported here, one of the shooters wrote antisemitic postings online, and the city mayor said the crime's definitely got all the markings of a hate crime.
