3 officers promoted for heroism during Jersey City shootings

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — Three police officers who have been credited with preventing further bloodshed during last month’s attack on a kosher market in Jersey City are being promoted.

Mayor Steve Fulop is appointing Officers Kendric Jackson, Mariela Fernandez and Raymond Sanchez to the rank of detective at a ceremony at City Hall on Wednesday.

Sanchez and Fernandez were among the first to respond after David Anderson and Francine Graham stormed the market and killed three people in an anti-Semitic attack, and suffered injuries. Anderson and Graham died after a lengthy shootout with police.
