Mall Employees Shot to Death
Two employees were found shot to death on Sunday at a FuncoLand electronic game store in the Roxbury Mall. According to the prosecutor’s office, a patron called police at 11:36 a.m. after seeing a man lying on the floor in front of the sales counter. Police discovered he was dead from a gunshot wound. A search revealed a second victim, also shot to death, in a rear storage room. The county medical examiner pronounced both men dead at the scene. The victims are identified as store manager Jeff Eresman, 22, of Lake Hopatcong, and assistant manager Eric Rewoldt, 26, of Netcong. Authorities are asking anyone who was at the mall near 11:30 a.m. to call them.
