“We live in a technological era where people capture information without even realizing it,” Newark Office Special Agent in Charge said in a statement.

“We have long said that members of the public – who say something when they see something – are a force multiplier in our efforts to deter and fight crime. We ask your assistance, now, in our effort to determine as much as we can about what happened on December 10th in Jersey City so that calm can be restored to those traumatized by the events.”

The website, which can be viewed here, was created hours after New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal confirmed that the incident is being treated as an act of domestic terrorism, as well as a hate crime.

During that same press conference, Ehrie noted that the FBI plans to examine every piece of evidence pertaining to the killings.

“We’re trying to piece together social media, electronic evidence, and ballistic evidence to piece together why the suspects chose this particular store, those particular individuals, and what the inflection point was to that incident,” he said this afternoon.

Four innocent victims were slayed in the nearly four-hour shootout on 223 Martin Luther King Dr., the address of the Jersey City Kosher Supermarket: Police Det. Joseph Seals, Moshe Deutsch, Leah Minda Ferencz, and Miguel Douglas Rodriguez.

GoFundMe pages have been set up for the families of Seals and Rodriguez, respectively, in order to help them pay for their funerals.

The two shooters, who are also deceased, were said to kill Seals before entering the market and shooting the three customers, though a fourth civilian survived, according to Grewal.
