VIDEOS capture deadly New Jersey gun battle as officers & shooters unleash hail of bullets for HOURS
The shootout began on Tuesday afternoon after an officer investigating a homicide was ambushed and killed by two suspects, who fled and barricaded themselves in a nearby kosher supermarket armed with long rifles – with innocent bystanders still inside.
The violent encounter – which featured a heavy police response, including SWAT teams and snipers – was filmed by witnesses on the scene and posted online. A deafening chorus of gunshots can be heard in the videos, punctuated only by shouting from bewildered onlookers.
At least one officer and three civilians were killed in the hours-long standoff, in which both suspects were also shot dead by police. All but the officer – a 39-year-old father of five – were killed inside the store.
Several bystanders could also be seen fleeing the scene during the shootout, running in the opposite direction of the gunfire.
