Authorities: Suspect in NJ mall shooting is dead

PARAMUS, N.J. (AP) _ Authorities don't believe a gunman who killed himself after causing a lockdown at New Jersey's largest shopping mall wanted to hurt anyone.

Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli tells ABC's ``Good Morning America'' that 20-year-old Richard Shoop went into the Garden State Plaza Mall with the intent that he was not going to come out alive.

The prosecutor says Shoop left an ambiguous note with his family. While the prosecutor would not call it a suicide note, Molinelli says it did ``express that an end is coming.''

The Teaneck, N.J., resident's body was found in a back corridor on the lower level of the mall in Paramus early Tuesday.

Chaos erupted Monday shortly before the mall's 9:30 p.m. closing time. Authorities say Shoop walked in dressed in black and fired shots. There were no injuries.
