(CNN) -- Police are responding to reports of a shooter at Westfield Garden State Plaza Mall in Paramus, New Jersey.

At least one gunman is said to have fired shots at security cameras, the state police said late Monday.
There were no immediate reports of injuries.

Eddie Kahmann, who works inside the mall, told CNN he heard 6 or 7 gunshots around 9:20 p.m. ET.
"There was just people running like crazy, so I quickly just closed my doors, ran to the back, turned off all the lights, music and everything, just to stay hidden," he said.

Kahmann spoke from inside the mall, one of the largest shopping centers in the New York City area.
Ally Kozic, another mall employee, said she saw "someone dressed in all black, carrying a large gun walk past our store."more

Hunting season, nothing to see here. Shots were fired up the road from my place this morning and a half ton truck with a body was seen leaving the area.

20-year-old suspect killed himself in the mall

The gunman who opened fire at a New Jersey mall Monday night is dead after holing up in a back room at the mall and shooting himself, a local prosecutor said.

Richard Shoop's body was found at 3:20 a.m. Tuesday in an obscure part of Westfield Garden State Plaza mall, hours after he fired at least six bullets without striking anyone in the massive shopping center.


The shooting sent panic through the mall and set off a frenzied hunt for the gunman. In the early hours of the search, officials weren't sure whether the shooter was still inside or outside the 2-million-square-foot facility.


"We believe that he went in there with the intent to either be shot by police, which we call suicide by cop, or to take his own life, which ultimately he did," Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli said Tuesday morning.
