NEW YORK — Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop stopped by the PIX11 Morning News to give an update on his city nearly a month after a tragic shooting attack on a Jewish market that left six people dead.

Fulop told Dan Mannarino that despite the deadly attacks, crime is down in Jersey City.

On Dec. 10, two people walked into a kosher supermarket on Martin Luther King Drive and began shooting. Three people were killed inside the store, along with the two shooters; a Jersey City detective was also killed by the suspects when he was shot in a nearby cemetery.
