What happened A shooting at a suburban mall Saturday morning in Columbia, Md. left three people dead, including the suspected shooter.
The suspect and motive Police believe the shooting, which took place in or around the Zumiez skate shop in The Mall in Columbia, was a murder-suicide.
Police said Saturday night that they had found and disabled “two crude devices that appeared to be an attempt at making explosives using fireworks.” The suspect was also carrying a lot of ammunition, police said.
But the motive of the suspected shooter, an as-yet unidentified man, has not been determined and police said Saturday they didn’t yet know whether the shooting was random or whether he may have known the victims.
