UPDATED: Prince William County police have released a video of five suspects in fatal double-shooting outside Manassas Mall last Friday that claimed the life of a 34-year-old Baltimore man and left a second man injured.
The video shows the suspects leaving the mall and congregating around a car in the parking lot. They include four men, possibly African American, in their early 20s, as well as a light-skinned female, believed to be in her late teens or early 20s, according to 1st Sgt. Jonathan Perok, spokesman for the Prince William County Police Department.
The suspects left the mall in a dark-colored BMW with temporary license plates, Perok said in a news release.
