Just before 9:30pm last night, a gunman fired shots at the Garden State Plaza Mall in New Jersey. He was later found shot with what "appeared to be a self inflicted gunshot wound" at a construction zone in the mall. No one else was injured. A Bergen county prosecutor said, "The main motive for what he did tonight was suicide, whether self-inflicted or suicide-by-cop." [Star-Ledger]
