SHORT HILLS, N.J. (AP) — Authorities are searching for two suspects wanted in the deadly shooting of a man who had just finished holiday shopping with his wife at an upscale mall in northern New Jersey.

The man was pronounced dead at a hospital.

The Range Rover has New Jersey license plates U26 BVD.
