Report: Several dead in shooting at NJ supermarket

Several people are dead, including the gunman, after a shootout in a New Jersey supermarket Friday morning, sources familiar with the investigation told NBC 4 New York.

Authorities were called to the Pathmark on Route 9 in Old Bridge at about 4 a.m. ET. It wasn't immediately clear what sparked the shootout.


A heavily police presence was visible outside the supermarket in New Jersey Friday morning.

News chopper footage showed 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.

It sounds like the shooter was targeting 2 other employees ( a male and a female). The shooter was also an employee of the store. The 3 of them were working when the shooter left and came back in fatigues and with guns. The shooter was a former marine.

 I live in the town of Old Bridge. Yep looks like we made it on the map again but nothing good.  There were only 3 deaths. 18 yr old girl and 25 yr male and the shooter took his own life.  Shame. Sad. I feel bad for all the family members. Including the shooter. Thank God it happened during the wee hrs when the store was closed. It could have been much worse.
