Twitterati expressed their remorse on hearing about New Jersey shooting:
#NewJersey #shooting: 6 killed, 2 suspected shooters. The motivation appears to be criminal. Incident happened on a street in Jersey City where synagogue and kosher grocery store located. The incident resulted from #drug deal gone wrong and not terror or hate crime. pic.twitter.com/6CkzAfmay2
