    The shooting near a kosher grocery market in Jersey City, New Jersey, claimed the lives of six people, including one policeman, three civilians and two suspected attackers.

    The two suspects in Tuesday's Jersey City shooting have been identified as David Anderson and Francine Graham, law enforcement sources said as quoted by NBC New York.

    According to the network, Anderson used to be a follower of the Black Hebrew Israelites - a group whose members believe that they are descendants of the ancient Israelites and who practice elements of both Judaism and Christianity.
