REF Case #PD210009060; On April 2, at approximately 11:16pm, officers responded to the parking lot of the Manassas Mall located on Sudley Rd in Manassas to investigate a shooting.

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.
