MAYS LANDING, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say a man has been fatally shot and his brother was wounded in the parking lot of a mall in New Jersey.

Atlantic County Prosecutor Diane Ruberton says the shooting happened around 1 a.m. Friday outside the Macy’s store of the Hamilton Mall in Mays Landing. The Macy’s store had opened at 5 p.m. Thursday. The mall, which was open from 7 p.m. to midnight Thursday, reopened at 6 a.m. for Black Friday shoppers.

Ruberton says a 20-year-old Atlantic City man was shot multiple times and pronounced dead at the scene.

The victim’s 26-year-old brother, from Clayton, was shot in the leg and listed in stable condition at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center.

Officials didn’t immediately say what sparked the shooting or if they had any suspects.

More than 15 evidence markers were seen lying down in the parking lot and an SUV with bullet holes was towed away around 7 a.m. Friday.
