Surveillance cameras capture footage of Garden State Plaza mall shooter

PARAMUS - New video of Richard Shoop, the man who police say entered the Garden State Plaza mall and started shooting, has been released.

The video, from five different cameras, shows Shoop dressed head to toe in all black and sporting a motorcycle helmet, walking through the mall around closing time.

He can be seen walking slowly, with his gun drawn, firing off shots. Shoppers are seen flinching, then looking out in curiosity, and running for cover when they see Shoop approach.

Another camera shows an employee locking a door and then running to hide before the shooter approaches.

Police say the Teaneck man fired 6 shots inside the mall, and then eventually took his own life. They don't believe he intended to hurt anyone but himself.
