3 reported killed in shooting at Maryland mall

(CNN) -- Gunfire erupted in a Columbia, Maryland, shopping mall Saturday morning, leaving at least three people dead, according to the Howard County Police Department's Twitter account.

Authorities reported that an active shooter was on the second floor of the sprawling mall in Columbia in Howard County, according to CNN affiliate WBAL. Local scanner reports had authorities requesting multiple mass casualty units.

Images on Twitter reportedly from the scene showed mall employees and customers hiding in a stock room. The mall was on lockdown. Another Twitter image reportedly from the scene showed a bullet-riddled wall.

The Howard County Fire Department on Twitter reported an active shooter situation.

Both the Howard County police and fire departments were on the scene.

The fire department via Twitter advised people to avoid the area. CNN was first alerted to this story on Twitter.

No where is safe anymore, that is why when I go out.  I am vigilant, I don't be so deep in my book or music, I look around, watch who is around me, be aware on the metro, and honestly just be careful.  I even avoid super large crowds.
Things I did not do years ago, I do now.Unhappy

But gun control laws are nowhere to be found.
Only if some crazy person kills someone important that maybe, maybe, laws will be created.

Police investigating a shooting at a Maryland mall that left three dead, including the suspected shooter, are considering the possibility it was a domestic dispute involving a man, his estranged girlfriend, and her boyfriend, law enforcement sources told ABC News.

Before confirming that, law enforcement is trying to make sure they have the identities of the dead correct, and trying to rule out any other possibilities, sources said.

At a news conference this afternoon, Howard County Police Department Chief Bill McMahon said police were not yet releasing the identities of the three dead, and said they were still investigating a possible motive, but they were sure the incident was over.

"We are very confident that it was a single shooter, that there is no other shooter in the mall," McMahon said.

All three of the dead were found in the Zumiez store. McMahon said the two victims, a male and a female in their 20s, were employees of the skateboard store.

I'm not gun happy but was just wondering
Oh, it's too late for America to really do anything about guns now. That's what's so sad about it.

yeah i think the laws are pretty ointless because maryland is surrounded on all sides by states with very little gun control (VA, PA, WV). there's no invisible fence that keeps the guns from going into MD so it really only hurts the laziest of criminals.
