Video Shows Shooters Parking, Then Storming Kosher Grocery, Guns Up

Surveillance footage released Wednesday shows two people with guns leaving their vehicle and entering a kosher supermarket in Jersey City, New Jersey the day prior.

Five people, including the two assailants, were killed in the shooting at the JC Kosher Supermarket. A police officer was killed in a shootout with the two alleged perpetrators prior to them fleeing and arriving at the grocery store.

Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop tweeted on Wednesday that the two suspects had “targeted” the store. One of them is reportedly a former adherent of the Black Hebrew Israelite movement and had written anti-Semitic social media posts.
