Police are poring over surveillance footage and searching an abandoned car for any clues to lead them to the two Short Hills mall shooting suspects who shot and killed a man Sunday night during a carjacking.

According to the Essex County Prosecutor's Office, the shooting happened around 9 p.m. Sunday when two men approached a couple on the third tier parking deck of The Mall at Short Hills, an upscale shopping center in Millburn, N.J. One of the men shot the husband, 30-year-old Dustin Friedland of Hoboken, N.J., in the head and fled the scene in the victim's silver Range Rover. The wife was uninjured, The Item of Millburn and Short Hills reported.

One of the suspects drove away in the Range Rover while the other is believed to have fled in a green SUV, possibly a Subaru, which was also seen on surveillance footage.

The mall was immediately placed on lockdown as emergency services rushed Friedland to Morristown Medical Center. He was reportedly pronounced dead shortly before midnight.

Neighbors and friends described Friedland, an attorney who loved to run, as "such a nice guy."

"He was always so intrigued by my ideas," Anna Stanin, who lives in Friedland's apartment building, told The Star-Ledger. "He would always walk by and give me advice about how to brand my business, and if I ever needed any help."

Police found the stolen Range Rover Monday morning behind a boarded-up house in Newark. Officials are still searching for the green SUV.

According to The Star-Ledger, Friedland graduated from Toms River North High School and then went on to obtain a degree from Bucknell University, graduating in 2006. He went to law school at Syracuse University, where he met his wife, Jamie.
