Suspect who fired shots in NJ mall found dead

Paramus, NJ (AP) - Authorities say they've found the body of man suspected of firing multiple shots and causing a lockdown at New Jersey's largest shopping mall.

Authorities say the 20-year-old from Teaneck apparently killed himself and they don't think he went to the mall to shoot anyone else. The body was discovered in a back area of the Garden State Plaza mall in Paramus , which was under construction and not accessible to the public.

Authorities say a man dressed in black and wearing what was believed to be a motorcycle helmet fired multiple shots shortly before the mall's 9:30 p.m. closing time. Witnesses said the sound of gunfire sent customers and employees rushing for the exits and others in hiding. There were no other injuries.
