At least three dead in shooting at NJ supermarket

By NBC News staff and wire reports

At least three people are dead, including the gunman, after a shootout in a New Jersey supermarket Friday morning, according to NBC 4 New York and wire reports.

A law enforcement official, speaking to the The Associated Press on condition of anonymity, that the shooting happened early Friday inside a Pathmark grocery store in Old Bridge, a suburb about 25 miles from New York.

The official said the person believed to be the shooter is among the dead.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The store was closed at the time. New Jersey Transit closed its nearby park-and-ride lot, the AP said.

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.

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.

The Pathmark opens to shoppers at 6 a.m. ET weekdays.

NJ Transit's Old Bridge Park 7 Ride is closed as the investigation continues. Buses will provide service.

One of the first comments on the story....the name says it all...Here they come.

Whether you want to believe it or not, greatly restricting the number of guns manufactured will reduce the ease of criminals getting their hands on them... Not immediately, but over the course of 5 or 10 years.

Pathmark wasn't there when I lived there but if it across from Fridays then it is on RT 9 just past Sayreville.

Story I heard on channel 7 this morning had him wearing body armor. Maybe he got what he wanted. Prayers for any innocent victims outbound...

I not very familiar with parts of NJ my impression is a shootout at old bridge is like a shoot out at nesconset or commack.

Sounds like a disgruntled worker or customer. Combine that with a psychopath who's reached the end of his rope.

Whats with all these shootings lately? Has it always been like this and just now being reported more? The gun control fanatics are just eating this stuff up.

I just picked up a new truck in Old Bridge last weekend. It's a nice place, but proves that you're never really safe.

Article I read this morning said he went to retrieve an AK-47 and a handgun from his car. Also said he may have had a history of despression and mental instability.

Oh good....thankfully they never trampled on his right to be mentally ill and walking among the general population, and because of his actions, they can proceed with punishing sane, law abiding citizens for what he did, as per their normal plan. :-/

Oh no it was an AK... Here it comes boys get um while you can. With this being a "chopper" and the last being a "military assault rifle" it is only a matter of time. I might just have to put some money aside and pick up a few things that I have been putting off before its too late.

side bar:
If they do try to reinstate the AWB do you think we will be granfathered in again? Or will we be mandated to turn them in?

turn them in will spark a country wide uprising IMO

It's important to get a change in leadership, or anything is possible

I think the whole turning them in thing goes against the seizure of personal property thing, which is a no no.
