A police officer and multiple others were killed in a shooting in Jersey City today that authorities say is not believed to have been a terrorism attack

An unknown number of people are killed as gunfire erupts in a Jersey City, N.J., neighborhood. Residents and a school are locked down.

A second officer was struck in the shoulder by gunfire and two others were injured by shrapnel, Fulop said.

Sporadic, heavy gunfire rang out over the course of at least an hour along a major thoroughfare but later subsided. SWAT teams, state police and federal agents were at the scene. Police blocked off the area, which, in addition to the school, has some stores, a kosher supermarket and a hair salon.

Jersey City is just across the Hudson River from Manhattan and is New Jersey’s second-largest city after Newark.

“I can hear the gunshots. It’s like firecrackers going off. They were shooting like crazy about an hour ago. Then it stopped for like 20 or 30 minutes. The cops were clearing everyone off the streets,” said Patel.

Friendly reminder: cops enforce gun control - this was a good day. Did the gun's owner(s) pass a background check(s)? Everyone knows if you pass a background check, THAT weapon CAN'T/WON'T be used to shoot or kill ANYONE. It's odd news articles don't report how the shooter got the gun(s). Gun free New Jersey. 🤣 Stop infringing on the 2A.

This isn't true. NJ is a gun free zone. Therefore this is not possible. Did they interview the dead suspects? Yes it's ridiculous to even claim they know this wasn't a terror attack this early in the situation. This is just pure propaganda by mainstream Media news. Fake news Where is Cory Booker?!? It’s his area I thought!

it's terrorism alright. the suspects just arent who the mainstream wants to call out as terrorists. If drug dealers were able to utilize the court system when deals go bad, they would be much less likely to shoot each other. When was the last time you heard about a pharmacist getting into a gunfight with someone over a bad deal? endthedrugwar
