Shooting in Harford County business park

A gunman shot five of his co-workers at a U.S. office park in the state of Maryland on Wednesday, killing three of them and setting off a manhunt, authorities said.

Authorities said it wasn't clear why 37-year-old Prince arrived at work as scheduled and opened fire with a handgun on five of his colleagues. All five people shot were employees at Advanced Granite Solutions. Prince has been an employee for four months, working as a machine operator, owner Barak Caba told the Associated Press. Investigators were treating the shooting as a case of workplace violence and didn't see ties to terrorism, said Dave Fitz, a spokesman for the Baltimore FBI field office.

There is an ongoing "active search" for the suspect Davis identified as Radee Labeeb Prince, 37, who is considered armed and risky and was last seen fleeing the scene in a sports utility vehicle. "Certainly, we consider him armed and risky", he said. Several surrounding law enforcement agencies were searching for Prince with the help of the ATF and Federal Bureau of Investigation. If you have information on his whereabouts, call 911 immediately. That shooting was reported mid-morning, Wilmington Police said.

Three died at the scene and two were taken to a hospital. A reunification point for families was established at the Richlin Ballroom on Edgewood Road.
