Officers were watching a stolen vehicle when a man and a woman exited a nearby building, and the man opened fire with a shotgun, shattering the passenger window of an unmarked police car, police said. Amanda G. Anderson, 22, and Hassan Skakur, 32, then ran back to the building, and Hosendove turned around and fired at another officer and struck him in the leg. Police evacuated the building and called in Emergency Services from Jersey City and Port Authority police. When police entered the building, gunfire erupted from inside the apartment, going through the door. All told, five Jersey City cops were shot, three others injured and Anderson and Skakur were killed.
