Update: Local media is reporting that one of the shooters has been taken out by police at a bodega somewhere near the intersection of JFK Boulevard and Claremont Ave in Jersey City. Some reports claim that one of the shooters was hit, but kept shooting.

Heavy fire can still be heard in videos hitting social media.

Some reports have claimed that three cops have been shot, along with two civilians.

There appear to be two separate scenes. One around the Bay View Cemetery, and another closer to New Jersey City University. According to ABC, the scene is still "very active."

Yet another stunning active-shooter incident is unfolding Tuesday afternoon in New Jersey City, as two armed suspects engaged in a firefight with a group of Jersey City police officers, with some media reports claiming that the attackers escaped to nearby rooftops, where at least one of them continued firing on the street below with what were described as "long guns."

Loud gunshots can be heard in videos posted to social media. At the end of the video below, a man can be heard shouting "they took him out", though more gunshots followed.

Other videos showed ambulances responding to the scene.

Another video shows officers marching up the street warning pedestrians to take cover.

Police said at least one gunman is "shooting at anyone they see on the street," according to NJ.com. The shooting reportedly started in a cemetery before the shooter fled into a nearby bodega, according to ABC New York.   Another report claimed the two shooters targeted a Jewish grocery store and targets on the street outside, raising the possibility that this could be another anti-semitic attack. ABC said the shooting began at Bay View Cemetery, though there don't appear to be any kosher groceries close enough to the cemetery.

Police searching that cemetery have reportedly recovered a wounded officer's vehicle and radio. Surveillance footage has also been recovered showing one of the suspects entering a bodega after exiting from a van on the street.

No deaths have been reported yet, but at least one cop and one civilian have been shot. One of the gunmen has fired at a nearby school, prompting authorities to put all schools in the area on lock-down, and federal agencies, including the ATF, are on the scene near Martin Luther King Drive, where the shooting is taking place. That thoroughfare has been closed in both directions because of the shooting. Jersey transit has suspended rail and bus service on the west side of Jersey City.

The Twitter account for the New Jersey Police PBA asked that readers keep the Jersey City officers in their prayers.

Some reports claim that one of the two shooters is a woman, but we haven't been able to confirm that. There have also been unconfirmed reports of an IED in a store.
