A police officer, three civilians and two suspects were killed Tuesday afternoon during a standoff and shootout in Jersey City, authorities said.
Father Patrick T. Hoare, who was not a priest at the time of the alleged abuse, denies the allegation and has been placed on administrative leave from St. Matthew Catholic Church.
The decision is 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.
The man was convicted for plotting an armed home invasion to try and obtain the rights to doitforstate.com, an unsanctioned Iowa State University site.
Law enforcement officials in Jersey City, New Jersey, reported an active shooter. Local authorities report that an officer has been shot in the head in and multiple are injured. Two suspected shooters have been reported as down.
