UPDATE: 3 People Killed In Grocery Store Shooting; Gunman Dead

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: Officials say a New Jersey supermarket employee killed two people at the store early Friday and then fatally shot himself.
    
Authorities say he opened fire on employees he saw when he walked into the Pathmark store in Old Bridge, about 25 miles from Manhattan. The store's front windows were shattered by gunfire.
    
Officials said at a news conference that police fired no rounds.
    
Authorities say 16 shots were fired and an AK-47, extra ammunition and a handgun were found at the scene. The motive is being investigated.

UPDATE: At least three people have died in a shooting at a central New Jersey supermarket.
    
Old Bridge Mayor Owen Henry tells nj.com the shooting happened about 4 a.m. Friday inside a Pathmark grocery store. The store was scheduled to open at 6 a.m. but has remained closed, with police keeping onlookers away from the supermarket and its parking lot.
    
A law enforcement official briefed on the shooting says the person believed to be the shooter is among the dead. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the shooting happened in a different jurisdiction.
    
Pathmark officials have not commented on the shooting.
    
New Jersey Transit closed its nearby park-and-ride lot and told riders they could park in other park-and-ride lots or could ride the North Jersey Coast rail line.
