Howard County police said a College Park woman and an Ellicott City man were killed in a shooting in The Mall in Columbia Saturday morning.
Police have not yet identified the shooter, who also is dead.
Police said via their Twitter account that Brianna Benlolo, 21, of College Park and Tyler Johnson, 25, of Ellicott City were the two victims. The shooting took place inside Zumiez, a skate shop, on the second floor of the mall where both victims were employees, according to police.
Benlolo's Facebook page lists her as the first assistant manager at Zumiez in Columbia and her hometown as Cocoa Beach, FL. The page says she's worked at the store since 2012.
The mall has now been cleared, said police in a press conference at 4 p.m. Saturday. Investigators said they were not able to immediately approach the body of the shooter because he had significant amounts of ammunition and police feared he may also have had explosives.
