More jersey city shooting footage

Six people, including one police officer, were killed in Jersey City, N.J., on Tuesday in a series of gunfights that brought destruction to a kosher market and made a residential area feel like a war zone.

The dead included three people in the market as well as two suspected shooters, officials said. The slain police officer, Detective Joseph Seals, was a longtime veteran with the Jersey City Police Department, according to Chief Mike Kelly.

Officials believe the shooting began when the detective approached one of the gunmen at a nearby cemetery in connection with a homicide investigation and was shot dead, according to a person with knowledge of the matter.

The gunmen then fled in a truck and eventually ended up at the kosher market, where they opened fire on police officers and civilians, officials said. For much of the next hour, rapid bursts of gunfire could be heard echoing off the low buildings by residents blocks away.
