Authorities say a man has been fatally shot and his brother was injured in the parking lot of a mall in New Jersey.

Atlantic County Prosecutor Diane Ruberton said that the shooting happened around 1 a.m. Friday outside of the Hamilton Mall in Mays Landing.

She says a 20-year-old Atlantic City man was shot multiple times and pronounced dead at the scene.

The victim’s 26-year-old brother, from Clayton, was shot in the leg and was listed in stable condition at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center.

Officials didn’t immediately say what sparked the shooting or if they had any suspects.

More than 15 evidence markers were laid down in the parking lot and an SUV with bullet holes was towed away around 7 a.m. Friday.

The mall opened at 6 a.m. for Black Friday shoppers.
