Cody Donovan’s attorney says the 22-year-old “just wanted to help out” when he drove to Garden State Plaza on Monday night after reports of a shooter.

The gunman, later identified as Teaneck resident Richard Shoop, fired several shots inside the mall around closing time and later was discovered dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. No other injuries were reported.

Donovan was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon and has been released on $25,000 bond.

Attorney James Patuto says Donovan was honorably discharged this year from the Marines after four years and has been working as a volunteer firefighter and emergency medical technician in New Milford.
