Earlier this morning, WPIX reports that "an armed black man and woman wearing long robes and black hoodies shot at officers for as of yet unknown reasons at 24 Reed Street in Jersey City." Four officers were wounded—"One of the officers was shot in the leg during the crossfire and another was injured due to shrapnel from a shattered window entering his body"—and authorities conducted a manhunt, with K-9 units and snipers. WPIX adds, "Unconfirmed reports state at around 6:45am the two suspects were 'neutralized,' which may mean they are in custody or dead. They were cornered in a building on the corner of Reed Street and Bergen Avenue, which was first searched and evacuated." Update: Five cops are now reported injured while the two suspects are dead.
