Manhunt Ongoing for Suspect in Maryland Mass Shooting
Maryland police have released more information about a shooting at a business park that left three dead and two injured.
The suspect, 37-year-old Radee Labeeb Prince, committed a “targeted attack” at a business located at the Emmorton Business Park in Edgewood, Maryland, located north of Baltimore, according to the Harford County Sheriff’s Office. Gunshots were reported at around 8:58 a.m. local time, Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler told Fox News.
“We have lost three lives so far this morning in Harford County,” Gahler said, adding that it wasn’t a random shooting.
All five of the victims are reportedly employees at Advance Granite Solutions, according to Gahler. Officials said he was “associated” with the business.
Prince has yet to be captured, and he’s considered armed and dangerous.
“There’s an individual out there on the loose who committed one of the most heinous acts we’ve ever seen in our county, certainly we consider him armed and dangerous,” Gahler told reporters.
“We do not believe that anybody else was involved in this incident,” he said, NBC reported.
The owner of Advanced Granite Solutions said Prince had been an employee there for four months, The Associated Press reported.
