Brains-in-dish research forces radical rethinking of Huntington's…


Even allowing for the fact that these were lilliputian brains, they were not behaving at all according to plan. From the first days of the tiny lab-grown organs’ development, primitive “progenitor cells” romped out of their birthplaces in the deep interior and quickly turned into neurons and glia, specialized cells that do the brain’s heavy lifting, from thinking and feeling and moving to boring old neurological housekeeping. But the cells were jumping the gun.

In healthy developing human brains, progenitor cells spend a good chunk of prenatal existence simply reproducing, vastly increasing their numbers and postponing becoming other brain cells. The impatient progenitor cells, however, were in cerebral organoids — minuscule 3-D versions of the brain — created from the cells of people with Huntington’s disease in hopes of mimicking the patients’ actual brain development decades earlier.

It was new evidence that, in their understanding of this devastating genetic illness, scientists know only half the story: In addition to being a neurodegenerative disease, it is also neurodevelopmental, starting in the womb. These recent findings and other research are spurring a radical rethinking of Huntington’s, with implications for the age when any potential cure is likely to be most effective.

“It’s not conclusive, but there is suggestive evidence that neurodevelopment is altered in Huntington’s disease,” said neurobiologist Mahmoud Pouladi of the National University of Singapore, who led the organoid work. If so, then if scientists discover a way to repair the mutant gene or remove the aberrant molecules it makes, “the earlier you intervene the better it should be.”

In contrast, today’s most-watched clinical trials in Huntington’s include only adults, often middle-aged ones, reflecting the belief that most mutation carriers can reach their 30s or beyond cerebrally unscathed. In fact, doctors and advocacy groups strongly discourage genetic testing for Huntington’s in anyone under 18, presuming there’s nothing to be gained. According to the genetic-testing guidelines from the Huntington’s Disease Society of America, “Predictive testing of minors currently has no medical benefits and the possibility for psychosocial harm and lowered self-esteem is high.”

The new understanding is surprising because Huntington’s has long seemed like a prototypical neurodegenerative disease, one in which the brain’s circuits, especially those that control movement and cognition, begin to fall apart in early to middle adulthood. Exactly when that happens depends on the severity of the genetic mutation, which is a sort of DNA stutter — repeats of the nucleotide sequence CAG in a gene named HTT, which makes a protein called huntingtin.

Three dozen repeats of the sequence are normal; 40 or more generally result in Huntington’s symptoms in the person’s 30s, including abnormal walking, involuntary movements, loss of coordination, memory loss, delusions, difficulty thinking and understanding, irritability, and compulsive behavior. All are due to neuronal death in the movement-controlling striatum as well as the cerebral cortex. More than 60 repeats bring symptoms by adolescence.

If nothing else, the fact that people can live normal lives for decades without suspecting they have the Huntington’s mutation (unless they undergo genetic testing) seemed to confirm that, like Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s, the disease ravages once-healthy brains, but doesn’t strike before then.

Experiments with both simple collections of neurons growing in lab dishes as well as cerebral organoids grown from the stem cells of Huntington’s patients, and therefore harboring the DNA stutters, are now undermining that belief. Cerebral organoids in general reprise the development of the donor’s brain, growing from a few cells to a structure with millions, and dozens of cell types, circuits, and layers — a complex entity capable of spontaneously generating brain waves.

“Since the mutation is with you from conception, it makes sense that there could be deleterious effects on the brain from the beginning,” said biologist Virginia Mattis, who led studies at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles of lab-grown neurons produced from Huntington’s patients’ stem cells. But effects on the young brain are subtle, she cautioned, and “just because it is neurodevelopmental doesn’t mean that all hope is lost.”

In one of the most detailed studies of brain development in Huntington’s, Pouladi and his colleagues produced cerebral organoids from two kinds of stem cells. One batch came from human embryonic stem cells, from donated IVF embryos that had the Huntington’s mutation and were otherwise going to be discarded. The others came from pluripotent stem cells derived from Huntington’s patients, through a Nobel-winning technique that reverts ordinary skin or other adult cells back to an embryonic state.

In both cases, the genesis cells had mutations of different severity (45, 65, or 81 CAG repeats). After at least 21 days, the organoids reached the size of apple seeds, about 2 millimeters across, and were beginning to mimic the brain development of a 4-month fetus in terms of which structures are emerging.

One of the more striking findings was the failure of progenitor cells to remain in the hollows where they originated and replicate with abandon. Instead, Huntington’s cerebral organoids showed “premature neurodifferentiation,” Pouladi said, migrating abnormally early to their ultimate homes in the brain organoid, giving birth to neurons (a process called neurogenesis), and differentiating into specialized cells. The more CAG repeats, the more significantly the progenitors abandoned proliferation too soon.

Digging deeper, Pouladi and his colleagues found one reason for that: Progenitor cells’ timing was off. They lingered in the growth phase of their life cycle before getting on to the business of reproducing. That stole time from the reproduction phase. The segue to differentiation began immediately after the abbreviated period of cellular reproduction. More CAG repeats predicted more lingering in the first phase, less time for proliferating, and more premature differentiation.

It’s another clue that “abnormal neurodevelopment may be a component of [Huntington’s disease] pathophysiology,” he and his colleagues wrote in a paper submitted to a journal.

More research is needed to determine whether that affects Huntington’s carriers in measurable ways, including in their cognition, movement, or emotional regulation. But one consequence of too-early differentiation is that the genes in the cortical neurons in the Huntington’s brain organoids have a different on-off pattern. Overall, their DNA activation is that of less mature neuronal development compared to brain organoids created from healthy people, which may lay the foundation for eventual neurodegeneration.

The organoids’ behavior might explain puzzling findings in people who have a Huntington mutation. As children, their head circumference, a measure of brain volume, is smaller than healthy children’s, yet they are decades from showing symptoms. As adults, also before symptoms, they have a larger cerebral cortex, smaller basal ganglia, and less white matter, which carries signals from one neuron to another and thereby creates functional brain circuits. Mutation carriers also have a larger striatum, the region most affected by Huntington’s. The organoids showed abnormalities that can cause all of these.

Neurons created from the stem cells of juvenile-onset Huntington’s patients — but not coaxed to form 3-D organoids — also had developmental abnormalities, Mattis and her colleagues found in their experiments. The connecting filaments, or neurites, “were shorter and less mature,” she said. “By 40 days we could see a real difference in their neurons” compared to those from healthy people, they reported last year.

Scientists at Cedars-Sinai are now moving beyond cells-in-dishes to three-dimensional cerebral organoids. Organoids “are better able to show the process of cerebral maturation,” Mattis said, especially spatial organization of brain cells.

One striking abnormality in the organoids is the oversized movement-controlling striatum. That’s also seen in children and adolescents who have the Huntington’s mutation but who won’t show symptoms for many years, scientists reported in September. The striatum’s size initially outstrips that in healthy young people, brain MRIs showed, but then begins a fast pullback between ages 10 and 14. That might be a harbinger of the eventual pathology that precipitates the involuntary writhing and jerking that characterizes Huntington’s. It was as if the structure overshot its goal and then overcompensated.

One reason why brain development might go off course in Huntington’s is the effect of the mutant protein on cells’ life cycles. Healthy huntingtin gathers up molecules deep in the cell nucleus that are required for cell division, Pouladi explained; the mutant protein fumbles that task, hobbling the proliferation of progenitor cells.

That keeps cellular structures that resemble starbursts from growing to normal size. The self-organizing starbursts, collections of neurons radiating out from a central point, differentiate into all of the brain’s specialized regions, Pouladi said. In normal brains and normal brain organoids, they exceed 400 microns in the earliest stages of development. But in his Huntington’s organoids, none did, and very few were larger than 200 microns. The starburst size gap was especially stark in the organoids’ forebrain, which in the full-size brain controls higher cognition such as problem solving, planning, and judgment.

“There is accumulating evidence that neurodevelopment is altered” in Huntington’s, said neuroscientist Scott Zeitlin of the University of Virginia School of Medicine and an expert on the disease. “But we don’t know yet if this causes any clinically relevant symptoms in people” or if the altered neurodevelopment somehow sets the stage for eventual neurodegeneration.

One reason early neurodevelopmental abnormalities do not necessarily cause symptoms is that one region of the brain can compensate for deficits in another. For instance, although the striatum loses volume during the tween years, the cerebellum (which also controls movement) compensates, said Dr. Peggy Nopoulos of the University of Iowa, who led the MRI study.

If abnormal neurodevelopment does contribute to the devastating adult symptoms of Huntington’s, then efforts to prevent, treat, or even cure the disease will need to focus much earlier than they now do, she said. An experimental therapy now being tested in a clinical trial, for instance, silences the HTT gene. Only adults are in the study, which isn’t unusual. But the growing recognition that Huntington’s is also neurodevelopmental suggests that treating earlier (assuming the gene-silencing drug candidate works) would be necessary “to maximize preventive therapy,” Nopoulos said, preserving normal neurodevelopment and forestalling neurodegeneration.

Still too dangerous to remove bodies…


Whakatane (New Zealand) (AFP) – New Zealand police defended delays in recovering bodies from the White Island volcano Wednesday, saying it would be “madness” to rush into a landing on the still-smouldering disaster zone.

Monday’s explosion at the popular tourist attraction off the North Island coast resulted in six deaths and authorities believe the remains of eight others listed as missing are still on the island.

A total of 47 day-trippers were on the island when the blast occurred, and many survivors suffered serious burns.

Police Minister Stuart Nash said he understood the frustration of family members who wanted their loved ones’ remains returned but said recovery teams had no choice but to wait.

Nash said seismologists had predicted there was a 50 percent chance of another eruption on the island, which sits semi-submerged 50 kilometres (30 miles) out to sea.

He said there were also poisonous gases pouring from the volcanic vent and the eruption had blanketed the island in a thick layer of acidic ash.

“It would be madness for us to send men and women across to White Island in a situation that was not safe for them,” he told Radio New Zealand.

“We have a responsibility to New Zealand police staff to ensure any situation we put them in is safe.”

Nash said reconnaissance flights had determined soon after survivors fled the initial blast that there was no one alive on the island.

Police want to deploy drones to measure toxic gas levels in the island’s atmosphere and determine whether it is safe to return, but windy conditions have so far prevented them from being flown.

With weather expected to deteriorate on Thursday, pressure is building to start the recovery operation.

“We’re assessing all factors every two or three hours to see if we can go,” superintendent Bruce Bird told reporters.

– ‘Not out of the woods’ –

Visitors to the island, which is marketed as an adventurous day trip, included a group of more than 30 from a Royal Caribbean cruise ship, the Ovation of the Seas, which left Sydney on a 12-day voyage last week.

The ship had delayed its departure from nearby Tauranga in the wake of the disaster but set off for Wellington early Wednesday morning.

“A team will remain onsite in Tauranga and all hospital locations to ensure those affected by Monday’s incident are taken care of in terms of medical help, counselling, accommodations, and transport,” the company said in a statement.

“Our priority continues to be to ensure that all guests and crew impacted are well taken care.”

Among those caught on the island during the sudden blast were tourists from Australia, the United States, Britain, China, Germany and Malaysia, as well as local tour guides.

The death toll reached six late Tuesday when an injured person died in an Auckland hospital and Nash said it could rise further.

“There are still some very, very seriously injured people in hospital. We wish them the best but we’re not out of the woods yet, of that there’s no doubt,” he said.

At least 26 survivors are being treated for severe burns and Nash said some were so badly injured their identity was still not known.

“My understanding is that nine are still in a critical condition, they cannot speak in any way shape or form or communicate,” he said.

He said authorities were being cautious about publicly releasing victims’ details to avoid any mistakes.

Navy looking to make it harder for foreign trainees to buy guns…


ARLINGTON — In the aftermath of the deadly shooting at a naval station in Pensacola, Florida, acting Secretary of the Navy Thomas Modly says the Pentagon wants Congress to make it harder for foreign nationals participating in military training in the United States to buy guns.

“We’re looking at that to see whether or not we can get Congress’ support on some ways to, to make that less easy for them to get weapons like that,” he said.

In an interview with NBC News, Modly said the Pentagon is considering additional steps to further protect its military installations, military personnel and families.

“Everything is on the table,” such as looking at more thorough ways in which foreign nationals are screened, like continuous vetting, he said.

But Modly said training programs — such as the one alleged gunman Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, 21, was a member of — are vitally important.

“It’s very important for our national security, as well as the world’s national security, that we have partners and allies who we train,” he said.

Let our news meet your inbox. The news and stories that matters, delivered weekday mornings.

Last week, the Pentagon said there were 5,181 foreign students from 153 countries, including 852 Saudis, in the U.S. for Department of Defense security cooperation-related training. According to a Pentagon policy, foreign nationals who want to participate in the program are vetted for terrorist activity, drug trafficking, corruption and criminal conduct.

Alshamrani obtained a valid Florida hunting license on July 11, 2019, which allowed him to legally buy a weapon in the state. Nine days later, he purchased the semi-automatic handgun used in the shooting from a licensed dealer.

The shooting in Pensacola was the second deadly attack to happen at a Naval base in a week. The first was at Joint Base Hickam at Pearl Harbor, where a sailor killed two base employees before killing himself.

In light of both shootings, additional steps are being considered to better look at understanding when people are under stress or expressing potentially destructive behavior.

“We need to do a much better job of being in front of those types of issues,” Modly said.

He said the effect of both incidents is being felt across the Navy.

“These are isolated incidents but obviously extremely tragic for us and very, very tragic for our Navy family,” he said.

Modly is also expected to posthumously award Wings of Gold to the victims of the Pensacola shooting.

“The acting Secretary of the Navy will authorize and approve the immediate wearing of wings of gold for Ensign Joshua Kaleb Watson, Airman Mohammed Sameh Haitham, and Airman Apprentice Cameron Scott Walters,” said Lt. Cmdr. Derrick Ingle, Spokesperson for the Acting Secretary.

Modly who attended the dignified transfer at Dover Air Force Base Monday evening said being there was “incredibly impactful.”

“The three sailors who are deceased because of this act because of this horrific act were heroes,” Modly said.

“These kids are very, very young and the danger is always there,” Modly said. “It’s our responsibility to make sure that everything we do in terms of how we build the force, and how we think about employing the force keeps that in mind and that we do everything we can to keep them safe.”

Trans woman puts new law to test in landmark case…


Hangzhou (China) (AFP) – Earlier this year, shortly after completing gender-reassignment surgery, a Chinese transgender woman surnamed Yang was fired from her job, an all-too-common fate for members of the country’s LGBT community.

The reason given for her dismissal was chronic tardiness, but Yang smelled a rat and sued her former employer in what LGBT activists are calling a landmark test of a transgender seeking redress through a new addition to Chinese law promoting equal employment rights.

Yang, who asked that her full name not be used to avoid prejudicing her case, had considered her media-company employer to be LGBT-friendly, but says transgenders still find acceptance to be elusive.

“A lot of times, people think an LGBT-friendly company or environment is … actually being friendly to homosexuals or gay men, but not friendly to transgenders,” said Yang, who is in her 30s and introduces herself as “Ms. Ma.”

Her case was heard last week in the eastern city of Hangzhou, with Yang seeking a public apology and modest compensation under a 2018 provision added to the law by China’s Supreme People’s Court governing “equal employment rights disputes”.

“A lot of (people with) traditional ideas still think transgenders are either performers or prostitutes,” said Yang.

“The law will just be a dead law if nobody uses it.”

Activists call it the country’s first transgender equal-employment rights suit and the case has generated significant national interest, with some major Chinese media outlets picking up the story, and postings about the case drawing more than 140 million views on China’s Twitter-like Weibo platform.

Around a dozen activists and other supporters watched in the Hangzhou courtroom — some of them laughing quietly when her former employer mangled the term “LGBT” — as both sides stated their cases before the hearing was adjourned.

A verdict is expected in coming months.

– ‘It is time’ –

The exact size of China’s transgender population is unknown, but an estimated 0.6 percent of Americans identify as trans, a percentage that in China would equal more than eight million people.

They have long faced societal pressure to deny their identities in a country where homosexuality was officially labelled a “mental illness” until 2001.

A survey by the non-profit Beijing LGBT Center in 2017 found that trans unemployment is three times the national average.

But Chinese transgenders have been quietly asserting themselves in recent years, with advocacy groups forming and doctors reporting increasing gender-reassignment surgeries.

Xu Bin, head of Common Language, a Beijing-based NGO advocating for equal rights for sexual minorities, said trans people were being encouraged by an increasingly open LGBT dialogue in China and successful recent attempts to use the law.

Those include a Beijing court in 2014 ordering a psychological clinic to compensate a gay man for being administered electric shocks in an attempt “cure” his homosexuality, and a transgender man in southwestern China who in 2017 successfully sued a former employer for wrongful termination.

“In the past five years, there have been (LGBT) individuals constantly standing up and using law as a weapon to advocate for equal rights,” Xu said.

Many Chinese trans tell nightmarish stories of physical and emotional abuse by relatives or co-workers, but not Yang. Her family has been supportive of her transition.

Still, she endured the same years-long confusion and soul-searching faced by millions.

“I’m not saying I have not suffered or cried. But after the surgery, I’m still me. I still have the demands of work and life, and I hope to contribute to the development of the country. But not many people can see that aspect of us,” Yang said.

With information and affordable medical services increasingly available, Yang, sporting alternating blue-and-red nail polish, said “it was time” for her to undergo surgery, which she did overseas.

As for public recognition and understanding of transgenders, “any time is the right time,” she said, adding the legal landscape is becoming more favourable.

“(The situation for Chinese trans) is not static, pedantic, rigid. It has been actually progressing slowly,” she said.

Masked moviegoers interrupt showing of 'NO SAFE SPACES' documentary…


Police officers responded to a call on Friday when Adam Carolla and Dennis Prager’s free speech film, “No Safe Spaces,” was allegedly interrupted by two masked men who some customers felt were looking to intimidate moviegoers.

The filmmakers are chalking up the incident to evidence as to why the movie is important in the first place.

The La Habra, California police department sent officers to the local Regal Theater after receiving a call that two male subjects who entered the movie theater for the 1:10 p.m. showing had covered their faces with bandanas.

“After all of the previews and ads were over and the movie was just starting, two thugs sporting hoodies, masks, sunglasses and carrying huge duffel bags ran, not walked, up the aisle and sat at the back of the theater right behind us. They looked like bank robbers, home invasion criminals… they were trying to act scary,” a moviegoer named Vanessa, who asked for her last name not be used, told Fox News.

DENNIS PRAGER: ‘NO SAFE SPACES’ SHOWS THE LEFT AS ‘A PURELY DESTRUCTIVE FORCE’

“As you can imagine, I was nervous that they were planning something even more nefarious than just visual intimidation,” Vanessa said.

Vanessa and other moviegoers complained to the theater and called the police. She said she was issued a refund and left.

“When the manager went in to check on them they had removed all intimidating items. They knew what they were doing,” Vanessa said. “Potential criminals got to stay while we had to leave because we were afraid they might do something violent. My son did not want to leave because he didn’t want them to succeed in their plan of intimidation and free speech suppression. But I told him a movie was not worth our lives in case they had weapons or something.”

DEVIN NUNES SUES CNN FOR $435M OVER ‘FALSE AND DEFAMATORY’ UKRAINE STORY

The La Habra police department confirmed to Fox News that they arrived on the scene after receiving a call about two men interrupting the film, but said no incident report was made. It’s unclear if the alleged troublemakers were trying to purposely disrupt the pro-free speech film for political reasons.

“They came full sprint to the top of the theater with bandanas on their face,” another attendee, Scott Stroud, confirmed to Fox News.

Stroud said that he pressured management to call the police, and they eventually obliged after initially downplaying the situation and assuring that the backpacks of the men were searched. Stroud said he explained the subject matter of the movie to theater workers in an effort to be taken seriously.

Stroud said police told him theater management didn’t think it was necessary to investigate further, but he disagrees.

“Common sense says you would want to question them,” Stroud said.

DENNIS PRAGER ON WHY NEW FILM ‘NO SAFE SPACES’ IS UNFAIRLY RATE

The La Habra police department declined to say why a report wasn’t filed.

“This story is quite angering, and an example of what is happening increasingly in America. I urge Americans to be courageous. It took courage for us to make this movie and now, apparently, it’s going to take courage for Americans to watch it,” the film’s producer Dennis Prager told Fox News. “America is the safe space in which we are supposed to be free to hear different ideas, including the ideas in this film, without fear of reprisal, and certainly without fear of physical harm.“

The documentary, which Prager has called a “wake-up call” to the American people, focuses on free speech being restricted to satisfy political agendas.

“If I know anything about my fellow Americans, it is that we are not easily frightened by thugs. I urge America to reject the fear that these incidents are designed to engender; be courageous, and go see our movie in a theater. This incident is exactly why this movie is so important,” Prager said.

A rep for the film told Fox News that the people affected have been given tickets to another screening.

“We were very disappointed to hear that our fans were subjected to this and have asked our partners at Regal to look into the matter. We’re also asking the police department for a full investigation,” said Alfred Hopton, publicist for “No Safe Spaces.”

“We know that Regal values our fans as much as we do and that they share our view that people should be able to enjoy a movie without feeling that they are in danger of being physically harmed.”

Regal did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

“We trust that nobody will be intimidated by events like this and we’re confident that all of our theatrical partners will continue to make sure that all steps are taking to ensure the physical safety of our moviegoers,” Hopton added.

“No Safe Spaces” features commentary from a variety of Hollywood actors, scholars, academics, political figures, and media members across the political spectrum, including Van Jones, Alan Dershowitz, Jordan Peterson, Dave Rubin, Cornel West, and Tim Allen.

300 Saudi military aviation students grounded in U.S. after base shooting…


WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Nearly 175 Saudi Arabian military aviation students have been grounded as part of a “safety stand-down” after a Saudi Air Force lieutenant shot and killed three people last week at a U.S. Navy base in Florida, U.S. officials told Reuters on Tuesday.

The FBI has said U.S. investigators believe Saudi Air Force Second Lieutenant Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, 21, acted alone when he attacked a U.S. Navy base in Pensacola, Florida on Friday, before he was fatally shot by a deputy sheriff.

“A safety stand-down and operational pause commenced Monday for Saudi Arabian aviation students,” said Lieutenant Andriana Genualdi, a Navy spokeswoman.

Another U.S. official said the grounding was to help Saudi students prepare to eventually restart their training and similar procedures would have been taken if such an incident took place in a U.S. military squadron.

Genualdi said the grounding included three different military facilities: Naval Air Station Pensacola, Naval Air Station Whiting Field and Naval Air Station Mayport, all in Florida.

She added that while it was unclear when the Saudi students would be allowed to fly again, their classroom training was expected to resume soon. She added that aviation training had resumed for students from other countries.

There are currently about 850 Saudi students in the United States for military training.

Six people have been killed in an hours-long shoot-out in Jersey City after a male and female suspect launched two-hour gun battle with a SWAT team that reportedly began in a cemetery and ended with them being shot inside a bodega.

The Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office confirmed that one police officer was fatally shot and two others were wounded along with a civilian in the active shooter situation on Martin Luther King Drive on Tuesday afternoon. 

An unnamed federal law enforcement source told Fox News that two juvenile suspects – one male and one female –  were shot and killed in a stand-off with police, along with three other people who were inside the bodega. A third suspect, described by the source as a black male wearing all black, is still at large.   

Gunfire erupted outside the JC Kosher Supermarket just after 12pm as police officers reported over radio that two armed suspects armed with long guns had barricaded themselves inside and were shooting at anyone who approached the storefront.  

The gunshots continued for the next two hours, according to witnesses, as a heavy police presence from local, state and federal law enforcement agencies flocked to the scene and 12 schools in the county were placed on lockdown.

WABC reported that the incident began at the Bay View Cemetery when at least one shooter opened fire on a police officer. 

The outlet said that the shooter then fled into the bodega and began firing on responding officers as they surrounded the store.  

NBC4 quoted Hudson County officials as saying that two officers had been shot, one in the head, in an ‘ambush’. 

The outlet said the shoot-out began when an officer investigating a homicide approached the suspects and was then shot and killed as the suspects fled to the bodega.  

Four other people were thought to be inside the bodega, but it wasn’t clear whether any of those four were hurt or considered victims or suspects. 

The suspects are believed to have arrived in the area in a U-Haul, and police are now searching for the person who rented the vehicle.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives responded to the scene, and the New York Police Department also sent emergency services personnel as its counterterrorism monitored the situation. 

Police blocked off the area while dozens of bystanders stood around the perimeter and filmed the action on their cellphones. 

Witness Brian Clark told CBS2: ‘I got caught in a one way street with a bunch of cars and I was wondering why nobody was moving. And all of a sudden I heard it. All the shots started. Shots started ringing out. 

‘When I heard it, I see people running. I got out of the car and I see cops ducked down, and cops getting out of the way. 

‘And I’m wondering why, what the hell? So I get out of my car and I see it, and I heard it – pow pow pow pow pow – then I realized I was in a shootout. I never heard that many shots in my life. It was like I was in a war zone.’  

Andy Patel, works at a liquor store about three blocks away from the site of the shooting, told the Associated Press there had been consistent gunfire for at least an hour.  

‘I can hear the gunshots. It’s like firecrackers going off,’ Patel said. ‘They were shooting like crazy about an hour ago. Then it stopped for like 20 or 30 minutes. The cops were clearing everyone off the streets.’  

Martin Luther King Drive was blocked off in both directions

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy tweeted that he had been briefed on the unfolding situation. 

‘Our thoughts and prayers are with the men and women of the Jersey City Police Department, especially with the officers shot during this standoff, and with the residents and schoolchildren currently under lockdown,’ Murphy wrote.  

The Sacred Heart School, located across the street from where the shooting took place, was put on lockdown shortly after noon.  

Snipers were later seen on the roof of the building. 

Jersey City Board of Education President Sudhan Thomas confirmed that both Lincoln and Snyder high schools are on lockdown, as well as Schools 12, 14, 29, and 41. 

White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said President Donald Trump had been briefed on the shooting and was monitoring it.

This is a developing story.

Police Officer Killed, 3 Others Wounded In Massive Jersey City Shootout… Developing…


JERSEY CITY (CBSNewYork) – A police officer was killed and three others injured in a lengthy gun battle in Jersey City Tuesday.

Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop said police have found “multiple deceased” in a building police swarmed during the shootout, but did not provide specifics. Police had surrounded the building with heavily armed officers and armored vehicles.

One of the injured officers had been shot in the shoulder and two others had shrapnel injuries. A civilian was also injured.

Police initially said they were searching for two shooters, a man and a woman. Jersey City Director of Public Safety James Shea said they did not believe the incident was terror-related.

Fulop said the gun battle encompassed two scenes, one in a cemetery and another in a corner store. CBS News has learned that the incident began in the Bay View cemetery, where police officers encountered two people who they thought were suspicious. The duo then got into a U-Haul and drove to the store, CBS News has learned.

 

Dozens of shots could be heard going off as police engaged the suspects in the vicinity of Martin Luther King Drive and Bayview Avenue. The incident started at roughly 12:45 p.m.

Officers wearing tactical gear and carrying long guns swarmed the scene in armored vehicles. New Jersey State Police said they deployed canine units, the bomb squad, aviation units and tactical squads among other resources to the scene. The NYPD’s Emergency Services Unit also was brought in to assist.

“I got caught in a one way street with a bunch of cars and I was wondering why nobody was moving. And all of a sudden I heard it. All the shots started. Shots started ringing out. When I heard it, I see people running. I got out of the car and I see cops ducked down, and cops getting out of the way,” witness Brian Clark said.

“And I’m wondering why, what the hell? So I get out of my car and I see it, and I heard it – pow pow pow pow pow – then I realized I was in a shootout. I never heard that many shots in my life. It was like I was in a war zone,” Clark added.

“We were ready to take lunch and all of a sudden we heard a lot of gunshots,” a witness named Carlos told CBS2’s Alice Gainer. “I heard over 200 gunshots fired.”

“I have been briefed on the unfolding situation in Jersey City. Our thoughts and prayers are with the men and women of the Jersey City Police Department, especially with the officers shot during this standoff, and with the residents and schoolchildren currently under lockdown,” Gov. Phil Murphy wrote on Twitter.

“I have every confidence in our law enforcement professionals to ensure the safety of the community and resolve this situation. Today reminds us of their bravery and the sacrifices they, and their families, make for our communities,” Murphy wrote.

President Donald Trump has also been briefed on the situation.

South district Jersey City schools were placed on lockdown. Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop wrote on Twitter “all the schools in the area are secure and all children are accounted for.”

“Pretty anxious. I got a call from the school, I got a call from the kids that they’re safe,” a parent named Juan told CBS2’s Jessica Layton.

Jersey City Medical Center was placed on lockdown due to the shooting.

New Jersey Transit Police reported Hudson Bergen Light Rail was suspended in the area, along with all bus service on the West Side Branch. New Jersey Turnpike exit ramps at Interchange 14B were closed because of the incident.

“Today is a horrific day. Officers have come under attack and we have several wounded. Our hearts are heavy and the violence is not over,” the New Jersey State PBA tweeted. “We need prayers.”
