WASHINGTON (AP) - Maryland police say they've determined that a man who killed two people at a shopping mall and then shot himself "frequented" the mall and would hang out outside.

But Howard County police say they're not yet sure if the gunman, 19-year-old Darion Aguilar, had ever been inside the skate gear store where Saturday's rampage took place.

Police say Aguilar shot two employees of a store at the Mall in Columbia and then killed himself. Investigators are still seeking a motive.

COLUMBIA, Md. (AP) - The mall where a Maryland teenager gunned down two people before killing himself has reopened to shoppers.

The Mall in Columbia opened at 1 p.m. Monday, two days after a man with a shotgun killed two employees of a skateboard gear shop.

The Zumiez store where the shooting took place was covered by white boards as if the shop was under construction. Messages thanked first responders and encouraged people to leave condolence messages for the two slain workers.
