What is going on in the world?
Several people are dead, including the gunman, after a shootout in a New Jersey supermarket Friday morning, sources familiar with the investigation tell NBC 4 New York.
Authorities were called to the Pathmark on Route 9 in Old Bridge at about 4 a.m. It wasn’t immediately clear what sparked the shootout, nor was it known if the gunman killed himself or was shot by authorities.
Chopper 4 captured video of heavily armed police on the ground outside the supermarket. Several windows also appeared to have been broken.
SWAT teams had set up a command post in the parking lot of a nearby restaurant.
NJ Transit’s Old Bridge Park 7 Ride is closed as the investigation continues. Buses will provide service.
The Pathmark opens at 6 a.m. weekdays.
