Dustin Friedland, 30, was gunned down at The Mall in Short Hills, New Jersey on December 15 last year by the four suspects, who fled the scene in his expensive Range Rover. His wife Jamie Schare Friedland, who witnessed the attack, filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the mall earlier this year, claiming they had reduced security ahead of the tragedy to increase profits. Now the footage, which was released to ABC News, apparently shows the suspects stalking other vehicles and fleeing the scene without any security staff intervening.
