Authorities say multiple people were injured Wednesday morning in a shooting at Maryland business park. Two people were taken to a hospital, one of whom had come out of surgery, he said.
Maryland State Police released an image of Radee Labeeb Prince, 37, who is suspected in the shootings. The suspect fled in a black GMC Acadia with DE license plates after the shooting.
"At this point we do not believe anybody else is involved in this incident", he said, adding that Prince is considered armed and risky.
The sheriff said a motive isn't known, but that "this does appear to be a target attack limited to that business".
The wounded were in critical condition with gunshot wounds to the head, according to Maryland governor Larry Hogan, who spoke at an unrelated event. "They had a look of terror", he said. 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. Court documents obtained by the local paper indicated that he had a restraining order filed against him for punching the coworker in the face and threatening other employees.
Prince was sacked from another job earlier this year after he attacked a co-worker, according to The Baltimore Sun. "I felt very threatened because he is a big guy and very aggressive on me", the employee wrote. Use extreme caution if you see him.
"On the advice of the Harford County Sheriff's Office, these schools are now on modified lockdown due to an incident in the surrounding community", the Harford County school district said.
Prince has a criminal history, Gahler said. However, the charges were dropped about three months later.
Gahler said authorities believe Prince acted alone is still driving the GMC Acadia.
Authorities have asked that people avoid the area. "But a suspect on the run can be quite elusive, and he's so far proving to be just that".
