UPDATED Oct. 19, 9:58 a.m. ET: Radee Prince, the suspect in the horrific mass shooting in Edgewood, Maryland on Wednesday—and another shooting later that same morning—has been apprehended. Authorities caught up to him in Newark, Delaware late afternoon Wednesday, and finally arrested him at 7:05 p.m.
"On a sad day, we came to a very successful conclusion," said Wilmington, Delaware Police Chief Robert Tracy.
While being pursued by the police, Prince tossed a .380 caliber gun, which had shells that matched those found in Edgewood.
Original story below:
Five people were shot, three fatally, at a business in a Maryland office park on Wednesday morning.
A suspect, identified as 37-year-old Radee Prince, reportedly gathered fellow employees at Advanced Granite Solutions in Edgewood, Maryland for a meeting and started firing just before 9 a.m. He shot five people. Three have died, and two were taken to a nearby trauma hospital and are in critical condition.
Prince, considered by Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler to be "armed and dangerous," is still at large and is driving a black 2000 Chevy Acadia.
Prince has a criminal record, including pleading guilty to 15 counts of burglary in 2003. In 2015, he was charged with several handgun-related violations, though those were later dropped. There are also reports that he is being sought in connection with another shooting that took place almost two hours after the Edgewood incident.
Maryland governor Larry Hogan shared some information about Prince's potential whereabouts.
"The killer remains on the loose," Hogan said during an event at the State House. "He was last seen heading toward Cecil County, toward Elkton, close to the Delaware line." He also issued a statement about the shooting.
