This surveillance video from New Jersey’s Westfield Garden State Plaza mall released Friday captures the terror of a mass shooting averted on November 4.

In the video obtained by NBC New York, Richard Shoop, 20, skulks through the mall wearing all black and wielding a Sig Saur rifle modified to look like an AK-47 while terrorized shoppers run for cover. Shoop fired six rounds inside the mall but in the end he was the only person hurt, after he took his own life. Shoop’s motives remain a mystery but authorities believe he intended harm on no one but himself.
