Two Employees, Gunman Dead After Maryland Mall Shooting (National News)

Posted: Updated:

It's the second mall shooting in less than three months, this time in a crowded shopping mall in Columbia, Maryland.

The gunman started firing about 11:15 this morning about 25 miles from the nation's capital.

Some shoppers ran, others took shelter inside of stores.

Police arrived within two minutes but say the shooter - who was armed with a shotgun - was dead by the time they arrived.

Officers found the gunman and two employees fatally shot in a skate shop overlooking the mall's food court. Both victims were in their 20's.

Plenty more ammunition was found with the shooters body.

Five others were hurt. No word yet on the motive.
