A deadly shooting in Jersey City, New Jersey left one officer, three civilians and both suspects dead.

Detective Joseph Seals, 39, was shot and killed on Tuesday by the two unidentified juvenile suspects while he was investigating a homicide. The assailants then hijacked a U-Haul truck, murdered three people in a Kosher market before getting into a shootout with police.

A shocking video captured by a witness showed another officer being wounded during the incident by high-power rifles. Officer Seals, who died, was an advocate for getting guns off the street and combatting gun violence in the community.

The Daily Mail reports that Seals was shot in the head around 12.30 pm after he approached the two suspects at the Bay View Cemetery. The male suspects then made their way to a JC Kosher Supermarket where they killed three before dying in a shootout.

The other officers were taken to the hospital to be treated for injuries and later released.
