Essex County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Thomas S. Fennelly confirmed the shooting Sunday night at the upscale mall about 23 miles west of Manhattan.

The television station says an employee at the California Pizza Kitchen, located inside the mall, said someone was shot in the parking lot.

The mall has about 160 stores and restaurants.
