Several, including cop, killed in New Jersey shooting

In the US, several people, including at least one police officer, were killed in a shootout around a New Jersey convenience store across the Hudson River from Manhattan Tuesday afternoon, prompting a security lockdown of area schools.
 
Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop told a news conference there were multiple people deceased inside the store, where suspects reportedly holed up and exchanged gunfire with law enforcement in a standoff  that lasted for hours.
 
Two more police officers and a civilian were wounded in the shootout but were in stable condition.
 
The standoff prompted a massive law enforcement deployment with local SWAT teams and federal agents rushing to the scene, as well as an emergency services squad from the neighboring New York City Police Department.
