They were preyed upon by the shooters who drove to the supermarket slowly and calmly from a cemetery a mile (1.6 kilometres) away where they had killed police detective Joseph Seals. Seals was investigating the murder of an Uber driver over the weekend when he approached the pair. 

According to authorities, Graham and Anderson drove calmly in a U-haul truck to the supermarket then got out of the vehicle with 'long' assault rifles drawn and started shooting. They had a pipe bomb in the U-haul.

Two police officers who happened to be a block away sprinted to the scene upon hearing the shots and they returned fire on the suspects which triggered a two-hour standoff. 

It ended when a team which included former NYPD commissioner Bernie Kerik's son, Joseph, rammed the storefront with an armoured cop car. The two shooters and their victims were then found inside.

Her spree with Anderson is believed to have begun on Saturday when the pair are thought to have murdered Uber driver Michael Rumberger, 34, by beating him to death then putting his body the trunk of his car. 

Detective Joseph Seals was investigating that death when he approached the pair in the cemetery on Tuesday because he saw their U-Haul which had already been tied to the murder.

For two hours, the pair exchanged gunfire with police in a terrifying siege which put schools in the area on lock-down and had residents running for their lives.

Timeline of Jersey City shootout 

Prior to 12.30pm: Detective Seals is shot dead at Bay View Cemetery after approaching a suspect vehicle in a homicide investigation.

The two suspects flee the cemetery in a stolen U-Haul and are immediately pursued by police.

12.30pm: About mile away, the suspects ditch the stolen U-Haul and run inside the JC Kosher Supermarket, taking hostages.

12.30pm to around 3pm: Suspects fired repeatedly at cops from inside the store, as police set up a perimeter.

Around 3pm: Cops stormed the market in an armored vehicle, crashing through the plate glass window. Cops killed the suspects, and three civilians were found dead at the suspects' hands.

Two cops, Officers Ray Sanchez and Mariela Fernandez, were struck by gunfire and injured in the shootout, but both have been released from the hospital in good condition.  

Jersey City shooters driven by anti-Semitism, officals say

  Jersey City shooters driven by anti-Semitism, officals say A shooting at a kosher deli in a New York suburb was fueled by "anti-Semitism" and a hatred of police, authorities said Thursday, the latest in a rash of attacks against Jewish targets in recent years. Investigators had previously stopped short of characterizing Tuesday's firefight in Jersey City, in which six people were killed including the two suspects, as motivated by anti-Semitism.

The suspects, who were killed inside the Jersey City Kosher Supermarket , were identified by officials as David Anderson and Francine Graham. The students later said they had been responding to a group of Hebrew Israelites , and further video footage showed the group had begun screaming

The fierce shootout terrified residents as gunfire rang out for hours. By the end, three innocent civilians were dead, and police stormed the market and killed the two suspects.

The day of chaos across the Hudson River from lower Manhattan produced numerous conflicting reports about the shooters and the sequence of events, and many details have yet to be resolved.

Officials remember fallen officer as dedicated member of CeaseFire Unit 

Seals was reportedly following up on a homicide investigation when he approached the two suspects in the cemetery.

He was a member of the CeaseFire unit, which often tries to intervene in gang conflicts to prevent retaliatory killings after drug murders. 

Officials say that Seals was responsible for getting dozens of illegal firearms off the streets.

However, Chief Kelly declined to specify exactly what kind of investigation Seals was pursuing at the time he confronted the two suspects.

Kelly said that Seals had joined the Jersey City police department in 2006, and praised him as dedicated detective who was well-liked on the force.

'Joe was somebody who was involved in city,' said Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop at a press conference. 'Officers in other precincts knew who he was because he was a good cop.' 

After shooting Seals, the two suspects fled the scene in what police describe as a stolen U-Haul truck. 

Chief Kelly said that authorities are investigating a possible 'incendiary device' found in the stolen truck, but earlier reports that the vehicle was filled with pipe bombs could not be immediately confirmed by DailyMail.com.

Residents' terror as hundreds of rounds fly during hours-long shootout 

The bullets started flying early in the afternoon in the city of about 270,000 people, situated across the Hudson River from the Statue of Liberty.

The shooting spread fear through the neighborhood, and the nearby Sacred Heart School was put on lockdown as a precaution.

Witness Brian Clark told CBS2: 'I got caught in a one way street with a bunch of cars and I was wondering why nobody was moving. And all of a sudden I heard it. All the shots started. Shots started ringing out. 

'When I heard it, I see people running. I got out of the car and I see cops ducked down, and cops getting out of the way. 

'And I'm wondering why, what the hell? So I get out of my car and I see it, and I heard it – pow pow pow pow pow – then I realized I was in a shootout. I never heard that many shots in my life. It was like I was in a war zone.'  

Andy Patel, works at a liquor store about three blocks away from the site of the shooting, told the Associated Press there had been consistent gunfire for at least an hour.  

'I can hear the gunshots. It's like firecrackers going off,' Patel said. 'They were shooting like crazy about an hour ago. Then it stopped for like 20 or 30 minutes. The cops were clearing everyone off the streets.' 

The standoff sparked a massive multi-agency response, and the scene was flooded with heavily armed NYPD emergency services unit officers, FBI agents,Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents, and counter-terrorism task force officers.  

Police blocked off the area while dozens of bystanders stood around the perimeter and filmed the action on their cellphones. 

Kosher market is at center of small but growing Orthodox Jewish community 

The kosher grocery is a central fixture in a growing community of Orthodox Jews who have been moving to Jersey City in recent years. Authorities were unable to immediately say why the gunmen went there.

Rabbi Moshe Shapiro, who shops at the kosher store and attends a synagogue next door, said he spoke with the store owner, Moishe Ferencz.

'He told me he had just walked out of the store into the synagogue not five feet (1.5 metres) away just before this happened, and then he couldn't get back for hours,' Shapiro said. 'His wife was inside the store. He said, `I hope my wife is safe.´'

The shootout went on for at least two hours, until police were able to take out the two suspects. The son of former NYPD Commissioner Bernie Kerik was among the cops who helped take down the shooters, a source told the New York Post. 

Kerik's son Joseph Kerik, a cop in Newark and member of a federal task force, was among the officers on board an armored truck that ended the standoff by smashing through the market's plate glass window and engaging the suspects, shooting them dead.

Along with the two dead suspects, police found three dead civilians inside the store. Chief Kelly said that preliminary information indicated that they were killed by the suspects, and not by friendly fire from the officers trying to save them. 

The Sacred Heart School, located across the street from where the shooting took place, was put on lockdown shortly after noon.

The terrified students were allowed to leave when the lockdown ended at 4.15pm, hours after school was supposed to let out. 

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy tweeted that he had been briefed on the unfolding situation. 

'Our thoughts and prayers are with the men and women of the Jersey City Police Department, especially with the officers shot during this standoff, and with the residents and schoolchildren currently under lockdown,' Murphy wrote.  

Snipers were later seen on the roof of the building. 

Jersey City Board of Education President Sudhan Thomas confirmed that both Lincoln and Snyder high schools are on lockdown, as well as Schools 12, 14, 29, and 41. 

President Donald Trump tweeted: 'Just received a briefing on the horrific shootout that took place in Jersey City, NJ. Our thoughts & prayers are w/ the victims & their families during this very difficult & tragic time. 

'We will continue to monitor the situation as we assist local & state officials on the ground.'
