MARYLAND: Police say three were killed in a shooting at a suburban Baltimore mall Saturday, including the gunman, but that they had not identified the gunman or discovered a motive. Authorities responding to an active shooting at the Mall in Columbia found three people dead, including the gunman who was found near a shotgun and ammunition.
At a press conference Saturday afternoon, police said they were still trying to determine the identity and motive of the heavily armed gunman who killed the man and woman, both in their 20s, at a skate shop called Zumiez on the upper level of the Mall in Columbia, a suburb of both Baltimore and Washington. Their identities were not released.
A Howard County Police Department news release said there were no reports of shots fired since the body was discovered. Police said it wasn't clear if the shooter and victims knew each other. Police said the the area was "believed to be secure," in a tweet issued at about 12:36 p.m.
