(THE TELEGRAPH) -- Jewish neighbourhoods in the New York metropolitan area have been placed on high alert after six people were killed following a shoot out at a Jersey City kosher market.
Investigators believe two assailants deliberately targeted the Jewish JC Kosher Supermarket and at least one of the suspects had reportedly published anti-Semitic and anti-police posts online.
The shoot-out began on Tuesday afternoon in Jersey City, New Jersey, directly across the Hudson River from lower Manhattan, when two assailants armed with high-powered rifles entered the store. A four-hour gun battle ensued.
