Shooting at Maryland business park in US: Three killed, two injured says sheriff's office, hunt for 37-yr-old suspect underway

Three people have been killed and two wounded in a shooting at a business park in Maryland, according to a report by the Associated Press. The hunt for the suspect is on.

Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler identified the shooter Wednesday morning as 37-year-old Radee Labeeb Prince. He says Prince opened fire with a handgun and police are looking for him. He is considered armed and dangerous.

The suspect and the victims were all associated with a company at the Emmorton Business Park in Edgewood. The sheriff says the two wounded people are in serious condition. Nearby schools have been locked down as a precaution.

Shock Trauma, a Baltimore trauma hospital that treats the severely injured, said clinicians were treating two patients from the Emmorton Business Park shooting as of 10:45 am, CBS News reported. Both were in critical condition, according to the report.

No other details were immediately released.
