Two people were shot — one killed — in the parking lot of a southern New Jersey Macy’s on Black Friday.
via NY Post:
The shooting took place outside a Macy’s department store at the Hamilton Mall in the Mays Landing section of Hamilton, CBS Philly reported.
More than 15 evidence markers were laid down in the parking lot after police arrived at about 3:30 a.m.
The mall, which closed at midnight, was due to reopen for bargain hunters at 6 a.m.
Cops focused their attention on a silver SUV in the parking lot.
“It’s sad,” one shopper said at the scene.”We’ve been doing this, me and my girls, for probably about 10 years now, just for the fun of going out — a girls’ night and trying to get some special sales and it’s getting scary now.”
Another shopper told CBS the shooting was a “tragedy.”
“It’s very scary, you know, you’re starting off the holiday season and you’re excited about the upcoming times with family and now there’s going to be family who are missing people and their holidays will never be the same,” the shopper said.
We love us a good sale, but it’s NEVER that serious.
