New Jersey Mall Shooting


A New Jersey mall is still closed today after a gunman opened fire last night.

Authorities say the suspect, Richard Shoop, 20, didn't plan on coming out of the Garden State Plaza alive.

Shoop's body and gun was found overnight in the back section of the mall.

Police say he had a history of drug dealing and drug abuse.

Shoop reportedly left a letter at his home, referencing his depression, and saying he thought the end was coming.

No one was killed in the shooting.
