December 11, 2019 at 02:29 GMT +00:00 · Published

A local recalled moments of terror as gunfire broke out in Jersey City on Tuesday.

"The SWAT ended up going up our building, up to the roof, there were people with rifles on all the other sides in the roofs. They were just everywhere," said the woman who witnessed the attack from her apartment's windows.

"It was like a nightmare. You hear these things happening but you don't really believe it's going to happen so close to you," she added, saying that she was scared the officers could shoot inside her flat.

Residents were told to stay indoors as the gunfight between police and the suspects continued.

At least six people including one policeman were killed, after two gunmen opened fire near a store on Tuesday. A motive for the attack has yet to be found, but terrorism has been reportedly ruled out.
