Police Shootout in New Jersey Being Eyed as Possible Hate Crime Against Jewish-Americans


A terrifying scene erupted in Jersey City, New Jersey yesterday, and police are now shedding some light on the possible motivations of the deranged killers involved.

On a busy street, and in broad daylight, two gunmen stormed a small delicatessen in the middle of town and opened fire.  Video from the scene shows that the assailants were not interested in targeting bystanders in the least, and focused solely on the aforementioned establishment.  Police responded within minutes, maybe sooner, and fatally incapacitated the two suspects but not before they had taken the lives of three innocent people.

As the investigation into the incident continued, something became terrifyingly clear:  This was possibly a hate crime.

The two people who stormed a kosher grocery store in Jersey City with rifles, killing three people inside and also murdering a veteran detective, have been identified as David Anderson and Francine Graham, four law enforcement sources familiar with the case tell News 4.

Three sources say Anderson was a one-time follower of the Black Hebrew Israelite movement, a group whose members believe they are descendants of the ancient Israelites and may adhere to both Christian and Judaic beliefs. There was a note with religious writings in the U-Haul he and Graham allegedly drove to the scene, but a motive — including any alleged nexus to hate or terror remains under active investigation, officials say.

Law enforcement sources had no immediate details on Graham, but a neighbor tells News 4 she lived near him for years. The neighbor described Graham as a former home health aide in Manhattan who met Anderson after she got hurt at work and quit; he says Graham turned into a “dark person” after they met.

Also:

The footage shows the shooters deliberately bypass other people on the busy street, aiming directly for people inside the kosher deli. Information continues to develop, and while authorities said Tuesday that it appeared the standoff began with the deadly shooting of a police officer at a separate site, Fulop and Shea said Wednesday that the bloodshed began at the market.

Local and national authorities are still working the case, and will likely provide a more complete picture of the tragedy in the coming days.
