Deadly gun battle kills six people

A police officer and at least five other people have died in a series of gun battles in Jersey City, in the state of New Jersey.

Two other police officers were also wounded during the incident, which culminated in a shootout after two gunmen barricaded themselves in a shop. Several local schools and businesses were also put on temporary lockdown.

A motive for the incident has not yet been established. Authorities say they do not believe it was a terror attack.

Authorities identified the police officer who died as Joseph Seals who was part of a state-wide programme to confiscate illegal weaponry.
