One agent, three civilians and two assailants. There are at least six victims of the shooting in Jersey City, a city a few miles from New York. There are also three wounded, including another policeman, but his life is not in danger.
It all started around noon (local time) at the Bay View cemetery, with an officer in the shoulder injured perhaps linked to a drug deal that went wrong. The two suspects, a man and a woman, then escaped inside a Jewish supermarket ( kosher ) along Martin Luther King Drive, from where they continued to fire at the agents who responded to the fire. Swat special forces also intervened on the site.
The two assailants have been killed and it seems that this is not an episode of terrorism. Jersey City is a town of just under 300 thousand inhabitants that overlooks the Bay of New York, even though it is located in the state of New Jersey. It is a center that has developed considerably over the past decade, facing Lower Manhattan at Wall Street , with thousands of commuters coming every day.
