How horrible. Three people — including the suspected shooter — were found dead on Jan. 25 after a gunman opened fire inside a shopping mall in Columbia, Maryland.

Another shooting has tragically claimed three more lives. Howard County Police responded to an active shooter situation in Columbia, Mary. on Jan. 25 after shots were fired inside a shopping mall. The scene is now believed to be secure, and one of the confirmed deceased is the suspected gunman, according to the authorities.

Three Dead After Columbia Mall Shooting

The shooting happened at about 11:15 a.m. on Jan. 25 at the Columbia mall, which is just outside of Baltimore. The incident was confirmed by Howard County Police:

Shoppers were evacuated after shots rang out, as police and firemen rushed to the scene. A man whose daughter was inside the mall told him over the phone that she was taking shelter inside a Bank of America with dozens of other people, according to NBC News. “Mall is closed,” security spokesman told NBC News. “[We] believe that the situation may be over, but the mall was closed.”

The Howard County Police have since confirmed that three people were killed in the shooting. The HCPD’s Twitter account also confirmed that one of the deceased is the suspected shooter:

There is no explanation for why this horrible act of violence occurred. More details are surely to come out, as this is a developing story.

This is the third shooting in a week, after one student was killed at South Carolina State University on Jan. 23 and one person was shot and killed at Purdue University on Jan. 21.

Crazy people do crazy things. It is so sad that there are so many evil and disturbed people out there. There have to be warning signs for people who are about to lose it, but I don’t know if they are addressed or even noticed! So sad for all those victims of random senseless acts of violence.

I’m sick of this. RAISE YOUR KIDS RIGHT! It’s out of hand now. How do you encourage your kids to go to school? I would home school mine if they were young these days.

I am going to home school my kids at this point. The next time my husband gets orders I will not enroll my daughter in school and my 18 month old son will not be enrolled when he is old enough either.
