COLUMBIA, Md. (AP) — Howard County's police chief says he understands that the public is looking for answers about why a teen fatally shot two people and himself at a mall in the Baltimore suburbs.

So far, Chief William McMahon said Monday that investigators are still looking for a motive in their probe of the shooting over the weekend at The Mall in Columbia. He says they haven't ruled anything in or out.

McMahon says there is no evidence the shooter, Darion Aguilar, ever applied for a job or worked at Zumiez, the store where the shooting occurred. He says that if the incident were "domestic-related" he would think investigators would know more about that by this point, but he isn't ruling that out.
