CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

New Jersey police are searching for two suspects accused of killing a man outside the upscale Short Hills Mall and leaving in his vehicle, a silver 2012 Range Rover.

Milburn Township police responded just after 9:00 p.m. Sunday to The Mall at Short Hills in Millburn after a shooting and carjacking that left Dustin Friedland mortally wounded, and his wife screaming for help on the third floor of the upscale shopping mall parking garage. Several shots were fired, and one struck Friedland in the head. The offenders fled in the couple’s Range Rover eastbound on Route 24. The man was rushed to Morristown Medical Center and pronounced dead at 11:35 p.m.

The offenders have been described as male/black, but no detailed descriptions of the offenders have been released, while police have asked for the public’s help in reporting anything witnessed at the time of the shooting or after the shooting.

The shopping mall, owned by Taubman Centers in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan and former owner of Woodfield Mall in Schaumuburg, has 150 shops, including Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue; and also Cartier, Prada, Gucci and Dior. The Mall at Short Hills is about 20 miles west of New York City, and about 10 miles west of the Newark Airport.

HLN Nancy Grace describes carjacking and murder of 30-year-old male.

Carjacking of 2012 silver Range Rover

Carjackings have increased in the past several years, leading local police to create a multi-agency task force three years ago. Almost 300 carjackings were reported through July 31, 2013, according to the county prosecutor’s office for Essex County. The area of the mall is near Newark, New Jersey with a high crime rate to the east. Wealthy suburbs, including Short Hills, are located near the Mall and to the west of the mall. The median household income in Short Hills was $229,222 according to the Census Bureau 2007-2011. Median household income for Arlington Heights was reported at $78,494 by US Census for 2007-2011.

Police in New Jersey have recovered the SUV believed to be stolen by the gunman of a mall shooting.

The Range Rover was found in the rear yard of a vacant house on Renner Avenue in Newark, near Interstate 78 about 11 miles east of the crime scene.
