Outside Cerro Villa Middle School last month, students and reporters faced off on the sidewalk, talking and furiously taking notes about a mall shooting that left one of the school's students dead and another charged with her murder.

But others, many of whom claimed close friendship to either the suspect or the dead girl, lingered long, savoring the attention and coolly discussing tragic events less than 24 hours old.

Until this week, this closely knit community across the Hudson River from Manhattan liked to think of itself as a model for other small towns. The police department won prizes for its juvenile-assistance program, the high school romped away with the state football championship and the mayor expressed pride in the town's 17 parks and public playgrounds.

Police in West Orange, N.J., said that James Henry Hampton, 54, shot himself Saturday as officers confronted him on a street.

Four teen-agers used cocaine about two hours before they died of carbon monoxide poisoning in a suicide pact, toxicological reports released Friday showed. The report also indicated that the amount of carbon monoxide in their blood was more than double what would be considered a fatal dose, Bergen County Prosecutor Larry McClure said. The teen-agers' bodies were found March 11 in an idling car inside a closed garage behind a Bergenfield apartment complex.
