JERSEY CITY, N.J. – The deadly shooting that left a police officer and five others dead here targeted a kosher supermarket, the city's mayor said Wednesday.
"Last night after extensive review of our CCTV system it has now become clear from the cameras that these two individuals targeted the Kosher grocery location" on Martin Luther King Drive, Mayor Steve Fulop tweeted.
Fulop did not explain why the grocery store was a target. Jersey City Police Chief Michael Kelly said Tuesday he had "no inkling on motive."
The detective was identified as Joseph Seals, a father of five from North Arlington who was part of a department tasked to get guns off of the city's streets. Seals was on duty and in plainclothes Tuesday when he was shot by at least one of the suspects at Bayview Cemetery.
