Community remembers Brooklyn man killed in Jersey City shootout

Posted: Updated:

Family and friends came together to remember a Brooklyn man killed in a fatal Jersey City shootout.

Moshe Deutsch, 24, was fatally shot inside a kosher grocery store Tuesday in what is being called a domestic terror attack.

His friends and former classmates tell News 12 that Deutsch was known in his community for volunteering his time and dedicating himself to studying the Torah.

Officials say the shooters were targeting Jewish people.

Community leaders, elected officials and neighbors came to pay their respects to his family and to send a strong message that people of all backgrounds will stand together to denounce hatred and support each other in their time of need.

Detective Joseph Seals, Jersey City resident Mindel Ferentz and Ecuadorian immigrant Miguel Douglas Rodrigues were also killed in the shootout.
