‘THERE WAS HYSTERIA’ New Jersey gunman found dead inside mall, cops say

Somehow this will be another one to turn into calls for more gun control.
Check it out:

A gunman who sparked panic, but caused no casualties when he opened fire inside a Paramus, N.J. mall Monday night was found dead early Tuesday morning of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli and Paramus Police Chief Kenneth Ehrenberg confirmed at a press conference that 20-year-old Richard R. Shoop’s body was found at 3:20 a.m. local time in “a … Byzantine area of new construction” within the Garden State Plaza mall. Molinelli said Shoop killed himself with the same weapon he used at the mall and that a note was found. Ehrenberg said the area where Shoop was found was not open to the public.

A law enforcement source told Fox News that police believe he was targeting one person who turned out not to have been at the mall. Instead, he fired shots into the air and waved at people, according to witnesses.
