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.
