AP photoA law enforcement official says at least three people have died in a shooting at a New Jersey supermarket.
The law enforcement official briefed on the shooting tells The Associated Press that the person believed to be the shooter is among the dead. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the shooting took place in a different jurisdiction.
The official says the shooting happened early Friday inside a Pathmark grocery store in Old Bridge, a suburb about 25 miles from New York. The store was closed at the time.
New Jersey Transit closed its nearby park-and-ride lot.
