Official: 3 dead in New Jersey supermarket shooting this morning

TRENTON, N.J. — At least three people have died in a shooting at a New Jersey supermarket early this morning, a law enforcement official said.

The person believed to be the shooter is among the dead, a law enforcement official briefed on the shooting told The Associated Press. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the shooting took place in a different jurisdiction.

The shooting happened in the overnight hours inside a Pathmark grocery store in Old Bridge, a suburb about 25 miles from New York, the official said. The store was closed at the time and was scheduled to open at 6 a.m.

The store and its parking lot were closed Friday.

New Jersey Transit closed its nearby park-and-ride lot and told riders that they could park in other park-and-ride lots or could ride the North Jersey Coast rail line.
