A police officer in New Jersey is being praised as a hero after taking a key part in gunning down the two deranged gunman who went on a killing spree in New Jersey on Tuesday.
As The Daily Mail reports:
The son of former NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik helped shoot dead two detective-killing gunmen who yesterday slaughtered three inside a Jersey City kosher store.
Joseph Kerik, of Newark Police Department, was among officers who smashed through the storefront in an armored car following a two-hour shootout during which hundreds of rounds were exchanged.
Detective Kerik and two other officers jumped from the vehicle and into the shop where they shot the suspects dead, sources revealed.
Bernard Kerik, who is known as Bernie, tweeted: ‘At Jersey City Medical Center with my son Joe… he’s okay by Prayers for the Jersey City Police and their fallen officer.’
If not for the stunning heroism of these officers, many more people very well have been killed. The motives of the shooters are still under investigation, although it does appear they purposefully targeted the Jewish Deli.
