One of the shooters who targeted a Jersey City kosher market was identified as David Anderson, a Black Hebrew Israelite, who published anti-Semitic and anti-police posts on social media.

Anderson, 47, and his girlfriend, Francine Graham, 50, were both shot and killed by a SWAT team after they slaughtered three people inside the market on Tuesday afternoon.

Earlier, the suspects killed Jersey City Detective Joseph Seals at a cemetery after he spotted a stolen U-Haul truck that was linked to a murder he was investigating.

Seals was a 40-year-old father-of-five and a 15-year veteran of the Jersey City police force.

The suspects drove about a mile to the JC Kosher Supermarket in the U-Haul truck which they parked across the street.

Surveillance camera footage shows Anderson and Graham rushing toward the market, firing assault rifles.

Once inside, they killed three innocent victims, including the wife of the store owner.

At 12:43 pm, law enforcement officers arrived on the scene and exchanged gunfire with the suspects in a 2-hour standoff.

The gunfight ended when police drove an armored vehicle through the storefront and shot the suspects.

6 people are confirmed dead, including two suspects who went on a shooting rampage at a cemetery and a kosher market in Jersey City on Tuesday, Dec. 10.

Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop said the two suspects "targeted" the Jewish market, where three innocent people were killed, including the wife of the store owner.

According to CBS News, the suspects shot and killed Detective Joseph Seals at a cemetery after he spotted a stolen U-Haul truck that was linked to a murder he was investigating.

The suspects - a male and a female - then drove about a mile to the kosher market, jumped out of the truck and opened fire, killing two innocent shoppers and the store owner's wife inside.

Mayor Fulop said surveillance footage "makes it clear" that the store was targeted by the shooters who engaged SWAT teams in a 2-hour standoff.

"They park the van. They exit the van with long guns in their hands. And they immediately begin firing in the location where we lost three of our citizens yesterday."

The firefight ended when police drove an armored vehicle through the storefront and fatally shot the two suspects.

All of the victims, except the police officer, were Orthodox Jews.

Update: the shooters are identified as David Anderson and Francine Graham. Anderson is a "Black Hebrew Israelite" who published anti-Semitic and anti-police posts on social media.

A 20-year-old Michigan woman secretly video recorded her boyfriend wiping his fingerprints off bullets before loading a handgun and shooting her to death.

India Mackey, of Detroit, died a day after her 20th birthday. She used her cell phone to secretly record 18-year-old Kevin Dixon as he loaded a weapon while sitting in the passenger seat of a van in a parking lot.

Mackey, who was in the driver's seat, had argued with Dixon before she was killed.

"You think I'm playing, huh? Gonna hit you with these hollow-tip 45s," Dixon is heard saying in the video. Mackey stopped recorded a moment before she was shot in the head, according to WXYZ-TV news.

"This video is being taken by a woman who is going to be killed in moments," Macomb County Prosecuting Attorney Eric Smith told WXYZ-TV.

"It's unbelievable to me. The idea that he's pulling the bullet out, wiping his fingerprints off, showing it to her."

Dixon then got out of the van and moved Mackey into the passenger side. He got behind the wheel and began driving the van erratically. He used Mackey's cell phone to call his mother and ask her to hide the murder weapon.

His erratic driving caught the attention of a police officer in nearby Eastpointe. The officer pulled him over and found the mortally wounded Mackey in the van.

She was rushed to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Dixon's mother has also been charged as an accessory after the fact and tampering with evidence, according to WJBK-TV.

Mackey's father, Joseph Polk, said he warned his daughter about dating Dixon. "I didn't like the young man and I got the wrong vibes from him," Polk told WJBK-TV.

"I told her, I talked to her, I said, 'He's not the one for you, baby.' I try to pride myself on being a protector, but you can't protect your kids from who they interact with," said Polk, adding that he has 8 children.

Lil Reese knows he is lucky to be alive. The 26-year-old Chicago rapper was shot in the neck while riding in a car in suburban Chicago on Nov. 11.

Surveillance footage taken from a traffic camera shows a gunman firing a Draco AK-47 pistol at Reese's car across several lanes of traffic.

Police have no suspects in the shooting. Reese was reported to be in critical condition at Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

While in the hospital, Reese hopped on Instagram Live to show his haters that he was still breathing.

After being released from the hospital, Reese, aka Grim Reaper, posted an image that shows a stapled vertical surgical incision on the front of his neck.

He captioned the image: "Made 4 it Lifes a gamble I got hella luck" [sic].

Reese has become a favorite target of robbing crews and rival Chicago rappers.

The Sacramento County Sheriff's Office released surveillance video footage of a woman's final moments before she was executed in front of sheriff's deputies by her abusive boyfriend.

The violence occurred around 12:30 a.m. outside a Carmichael, California apartment complex on Oct. 27.

The video, which includes commentary by sheriff's spokeswoman Sgt. Tess Deterding, begins with a chaotic scene as the suspect fights with a woman and throws her to the ground, while trying to kick in an apartment door.

The man, who was later identified as Earnest Easterling, 25, lifts his shirt to reveal a handgun tucked into his waistband. "You got the police called on me! I didn't do sh*t!" he yelled to someone inside the apartment.

The woman, who was still on the ground, yelled to someone inside the apartment to lock her door. The woman was later identified as Chanell Brown, 23, Easterling's girlfriend.

At some point, Easterling left and returned to the apartment. "He had replaced the standard round magazine in his handgun with a 50 round drum magazine," Sgt. Deterding explained.

Multiple neighbors called 911 to report a man with a gun. He again tried to break the door down.

"Hey, on my mama. When they come, I'm blasting you... You broke my car, doing that weird s---," he said while punching Brown. "Ernest, stop!" she cried.

As sheriff's deputies arrived on the scene at 12:40 a.m., Brown walked toward them with her hands in the air. "Naw, bruh," Easterling said. "Ernie, go in the house," Brown told him.

As Brown walked behind a fence with her hands in the air, Easterling lunged at her and opened fire, killing her.

The three deputies unloaded their clips at Easterling, killing him instantly.

"That video speaks a thousand words," Sgt. Deterding told CBS News. "If you watch it, everything unfolds in a split second."

Brown's mother described her daughter as an "angel," and said she saved lives the night she died. "That's what really happened. She sacrificed her own life."

A family member said Easterling was Brown's first boyfriend. She said Brown's personality changed and she became distant after dating Easterling.

The family held a press conference on the day the video was released to the public. They said their goal is to prevent others domestic violence victims from meeting the same fate as Brown.

CAUTION: The video contains scenes of graphic violence that may be disturbing to some viewers.

A St. Louis, Missouri cop who was arrested for killing his fellow officer during a game of Russian roulette may have forced the woman to participate in the dangerous game.

Nathaniel Hendren is accused of fatally shooting fellow police officer Katlyn Alix in the early morning hours of Jan. 24, according to PEOPLE.

Alix, 24, and Hendren, 29, were allegedly drinking in Hendren's apartment when the gun went off, killing Alix.

According to a probable cause statement obtained by PEOPLE, Hendren emptied the gun before putting "one cartridge back into the cylinder."

The two then took turns pointing the gun at each other and pulling the trigger, the probable cause statement says.

At one point, Hendren pointed the gun at Alix and the gun discharged, striking her in the chest, the report says.

Alix, a patrol officer in her second year on the force, was pronounced dead upon arrival at a hospital.

Hendren's law enforcement partner, Patrick Riordan, who was also in the apartment that morning, were both on duty when Alix was killed. Alix was off-duty.

Alix's mother Aimee Lynn Wahlers, filed a wrongful death lawsuit in St. Louis Circuit Court on Wednesday.

The lawsuit alleges that Hendren forced other women to play the deadly game in the past, the AP and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch report.

The lawsuit also alleges Hendren forced ex-girlfriends to engage in sexual activity that involved firearms, the suit says.

Wahlers says the city should have known that Hendren allegedly had a psychiatric history before hiring him, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Hendren, who is free on $100K bond, pleaded not guilty to first-degree manslaughter. He has been suspended from the police force and is currently awaiting trial.

The Dallas Police Department released a mugshot of one of two suspects arrested in connection with the murder of Joshua Brown, a key witness in the Amber Guyger murder trial.

Police say Jacquerious Mitchell, 20, is one of three men who drove more than 300 miles from Alexandria, Louisiana to buy 12 pounds of marijuana from Brown on Friday, Oct. 4.

The men met Brown in the parking lot of his upscale apartment complex at the 4600 block of Cedar Springs Road on Friday night.

An argument ensued and Brown shot Mitchell in the chest before one of the men shot Brown twice, killing him. Mitchell is under police guard in an intensive care unit at a Dallas hospital.

Brown, 28, was killed just 10 days after he testified in Guyger's murder trial. The former Dallas cop was convicted of murdering 26-year-old accountant Botham Jean in his own apartment. Guyger is serving 10 years in prison.

A second suspect has been arrested in the ambush murder of Joshua Brown, a key witness in the Amber Guyger murder trial in Dallas, Texas.

Police say Brown, 28, was shot to death during a drug deal that went horribly wrong on Friday night. He was killed 10 days after he testified against Guyger, a former Dallas police officer who is currently serving 10 years in prison for murdering Botham Jean, 26.

Just 2 days after Guyger's trial ended, Brown was killed by three men who, police say, drove from Alexandria, Louisiana to buy 12 pounds of marijuana from him.

During his testimony, Brown admitted to previously serving time for a felony drug conviction.

The three men met Brown in the parking lot of his apartment complex. An argument ensued and Brown shot one of the men before he was shot twice. Brown was rushed to Parkland Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Police say Michael Mitchell, 32, has been arrested in Brown's murder. Another suspect, Jacquerious Mitchell, 20, is in intensive care in critical condition with a gunshot wound to the chest.

Police are searching for the third suspect, Thaddeous Green, 22, of Louisiana.

Dallas police denied Brown's death was linked to the Guyger trial, and the police department vigorously denied rumors of retaliation or assassination.

During a press conference to announce the arrests, Dallas Police Assistant Chief Avery Moore rebuked "community leaders" for spreading rumors.

Joshua Brown, the Amber Guyger witness who was gunned down on Friday night in Dallas, was set to testify in a wrongful death lawsuit against the Dallas Police Department when he was killed.

Brown, 28, gave key testimony against Guyger, 31, on day 2 of her murder trial for killing Botham Jean, 26. She was convicted of murder and sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Brown was shot to death 2 days after Guyger was sentenced.

Jean's mother is suing the city, citing the Dallas Police Department for failure to properly train Guyger.

The attorney for the Jean family, S. Lee Merritt, stopped just short of accusing the police of assassinating Brown.

"It is a possibility," Merritt said. "I don't have any evidence other than the timing, but I am not ruling anything out. But what I do know is that Joshua was targeted. This was an assassination. He pulled into his parking lot and he was shot. The perpetrators fled. They didn't steal anything from him."

Witnesses reported seeing a silver four-door sedan speeding out of the parking lot after the shooting.

"This is a kid who had no gang ties, there was no lover's quarrel," said Merritt. "He was an AirBnB host and roofer. All the usual suspects of crime, drugs and sex are simply not there."

Brown, 28, was gunned down about 5 miles from the South Side Flats complex in Dallas where he previously lived across the hall from Jean.

Brown was a defensive back for the University of South Florida. His former teammates were stunned to learn of his murder just 10 days after he testified against former Dallas cop Amber Guyger at her murder trial.

"He was a passionate individual," former USF offensive lineman Kofi Amichia told a reporter via text message Saturday evening. "A guy that always spoke his mind no matter what, and one of the funniest guys at USF. Could make anybody laugh."

Brown was a native of Lancaster, Texas, who transferred to USF in 2012 from an Arizona junior college.

He played in 8 games for USF in 2012. But he suffered a career-ending injury when he tore his Achilles tendon before the start of the 2013 season.

Former Bulls cornerback Kayvon Webster described Brown as athletic and competitive.

"Just sucks to see another brother lose their life so young," Webster said.

Twitter activist Shaun King announced a $100,000 reward for information leading to Brown's killers.

Brown testified on day 2 of Guyger's murder trial. His testimony was key because it conflicted with Guyger's claim that she shot "an intruder" after he refused her verbal commands.

Brown broke down in tears on the witness stand when he recalled hearing the 26-year-old accountant singing gospel music in his apartment every morning.

Civil rights attorney Lee Merritt, who represents the Jean family, tweeted that Brown was "ambushed" and shot "at close range" in the mouth and chest as he got out of his car at his apartment complex on Friday night.

His tweet sparked rampant rumors that Brown's murder was in retaliation for his testimony in court.

Merritt later clarified that he didn't know where Brown was shot. But he hinted that Brown may have been targeted for testifying against Guyger, 31.

"Brown lived in constant fear that he could be the next victim of gun violence, either state sanctioned or otherwise. We have more work to do deal with the constant threats to our community both from within and without," Merritt said on Saturday.

"Brown deserves the same justice he sought to ensure the Jean family. The Dallas County criminal justice system must mobilized to identify his killer and see that he is held accountable for this murder," he added.

Merritt said he spoke with Brown's mother and that she is "devastated."

Dallas County prosecutor Jason Hermus, praised Brown on Saturday, saying he was "brave" to testify. Hermus said more people should be like him.

"He bravely came forward to testify when others wouldn't," said Hermus. "If we had more people like him, we would have a better world."

A Detroit woman faces attempted murder charges after shooting her life partner 11 times, including 4 times in the vagina.

Police have not formally charged Tiffany Wallace, but she is being held without bond after shooting Airrion Wallace 11 times on Monday morning.

Wallace said Tiffany Wallace shot her after she asked for a divorce after 12 years of marriage.

In an interview with Fox 2 News from her hospital bed, Wallace said she asked for a divorce after she caught Tiffany with another woman.

"Because I can handle a lot of things but I cannot handle infidelity," she told Fox 2.

"She shot me four times in my vagina, four times in my leg, three times in my stomach," Wallace said.

"She wanted me to die because she has always felt if she can't have me, no one can have me."

She said she stayed conscious long enough to stumble outside and ask neighbors for help.

"I had to gather as much strength as I could, to get down my stairs and get outside, because the neighbors had heard it," she said. "As soon as I opened the door there was already people out there. I said, 'Please can you call the police.'"

Police arrested Tiffany Wallace outside her home. She told police she shot Wallace in self-defense, according to Fox 2.

The family uploaded graphic photos to a Gofundme account to raise money for Wallace's hospital bills.

A$AP Rocky's Swedish lawyer was the victim of a suspected hit in Stockholm, Sweden on Friday morning.

Prominent attorney Henrik Olsson Lilja was shot twice - in the head and chest - as he left his apartment building in downtown Stockholm around 9 a.m. this morning.

Lilja initially represented Rocky when he was arrested for assaulting an Afghan migrant in Sweden.

Neighbors saw a man jump out of a SUV and wrestle with Lilja in the hallway of his building before he shot the lawyer and sped off in the waiting SUV.

Police have a suspect in custody - a woman who was previously banned from contacting Lilja. The gunman is still at large.

Lilja's condition is unknown. He was conscious and speaking with first responders before being rushed to a hospital.

A witness told the media the prominent attorney was bleeding from a gunshot wound to his face. He told police "it hurts".

"It was very bloody," said the witness.

Police don't believe the shooting is connected with Rocky's assault case.

Rocky was found guilty of assault last month after serving two months in a Swedish detention center. He was given a 2 year suspended sentence and allowed to return to the U.S.

U.S. President Donald Trump is still waiting for Rocky to thank him for helping to secure his release from jail.
