Mall employees 'saw someone dressed in black'

An employee at Westfield Garden State Plaza Mall in New Jersey told CNN she saw "someone dressed in all black, carrying a large gun walk past our store" and heard "loud bangs" around 10 minutes before closing for the night.

Another employees described the scene at the shopping centre:

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.
