An attack that left six people dead in Jersey City, New Jersey Tuesday targeted the Jewish community. The attacker chose a Kosher grocery to carry out his attack. Authorities confirmed Wednesday it was deliberate.

We now also know the shooter was a member of the anti-Semitic group,  Black Hebrew Israelites. That same group provoked a group of high school boys visiting Washington D.C. earlier this year from Covington Catholic.

“I just finished a long meeting w/the leadership of the Orthodox Jewish community here in #JerseyCity. I explained in detail all the information that we have in public. The bottom line is we are thankful this community is part of JC and we will heal together,” the city’s mayor wrote on Twitter Wednesday.

The victims killed in Tuesday’s attack include two shooters, a police officer, and three locals. We also now know there was pipe bomb placed at the scene, officials confirmed in a news conference Wednesday.
