Three Dead In Maryland Mall Shooting
One of the dead is believed to be the shooter. A lockdown has ended and police are letting shoppers leave the mall.
Police said a 911 call at about 11:15 a.m. EST reported that shots had been fired at the mall, a sprawling shopping center with about 200 stores about 30 miles north of Washington, D.C.
Colin Reddy, who works at the mall, told CNN he “heard a loud boom.”
“We thought it was construction because there’s a lot of construction going on at the mall right now. Then I heard it again. Like ‘boom, boom, boom’. And then everybody started running,” he said.
The police department is advising people to avoid the area.
