As Twitchy reported, there was a shooter at the Garden State Plaza Mall in Paramus, N.J., Monday night. Suspect Richard Shoop was reported dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

National Review’s Kathryn Jean Lopez was at the mall and tweeted from on-the-scene. Not there? Another Twitter user named Richard Shoop:


Oh dear. Too soon?

There was apparently some media confusion:

Heh. “Take care, man.” Other Twitter users also wish the other Richard Shoop well.
