Howard County Police said a 19-year-old who fatally shot two employees at a Maryland mall in January before taking his own life had a fixation on the 1999 Columbine High School shooting and that he posted a chilling message online moments before his rampage.
A 19-year-old who fatally shot two employees at a Maryland mall before taking his own life mentioned killing people in his journal and wrote that he was prepared to die, Howard County police said Wednesday.
The fountain inside the mall was littered with white flowers. The skateboard shop - the scene of the deadly weekend shooting - was boarded up, as if under construction. Outside the mall, a banner read: "Forever in Our Hearts."
The gunman who killed two people at a Maryland mall was a teenage skateboarding enthusiast who had no criminal record before he showed up at the shopping center armed with a shotgun, plenty of ammunition and a backpack filled with crude homemade explosives, authorities said Sunday.
The Prince George's County Police Department says it received a missing persons report for the Maryland mall gunman about 2 ½ hours after the shooting.
A 19-year-old College Park man who fatally shot two skate store employees at a Maryland mall before killing himself kept a journal indicating "some general unhappiness with his life," police said, but authorities have yet to find a motive behind the deadly attack.
Maryland mall gunman was an avid skater who had no criminal record prior to deadly attack
"We were concerned about whether he had booby trapped himself," he said, adding that officials sent in a robot to examine the body and found "not very sophisticated" attempts at bombs that were made with flash powder and homemade items.
"We have not been able to verify any type of relationship at this point between him and either of our victims," he said.
