Jewish Community Gathers for the Funerals of Two Jersey City Shooting Victims 3.5

▶️ Members of New York's ultra-orthodox Jewish community gathered, Wednesday, December 11, for funerals for two victims of Tuesday's shooting at a grocery in Jersey City, New Jersey.
👉 Grocery owner Mindel Ferencz, 31, and customer Moshe Deutsch, 24, were killed when two gunmen entered the Jersey City Kosher store firing guns, according to local law enforcement officials.
Police arrived on the scene and a shootout began that lasted more than an hour. When it was over, police found the bodies of three civilians and the gunmen.
Fears mounted Wednesday that the deadly shooting was an anti-Semitic attack as authorities recounted how a man and woman deliberately pulled up to the place in a rental van with at least one rifle and got out firing.
A day after the gun battle and standoff that left six people dead — the two killers, a police officer and three people who had been inside the store — state and federal law enforcement officials warned they have not established the motive for the attack.
"The why and the ideology and the motivation — that's what we're investigating," New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said, adding that authorities are also trying to determine if anyone else was involved.
But Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop said surveillance video of the attackers made it clear they targeted the kosher market, and he pronounced the bloodshed a hate crime against Jews, as did New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and Governor Andrew Cuomo.
