Another Mall Shooting Spree

 UPDATE bulletin from AP, 10 p.m.  "Police say they disabled crude attempts at explosive devices found in gunman's bag at Md. mall." Latest story before that broke.   "Domestic dispute"?

Earlier:  It's not enough that we have almost daily school shootings this month, but now you have your basic monthly mall shooting.  Three dead at Columbia Mall in Maryland.   "Authorities reported that an active shooter was on the second floor of the sprawling mall in Columbia in Howard County, according to CNN affiliate WBAL. Local scanner reports had authorities requesting multiple mass casualty units."  Classic: "One of the bodies was located near a gun and ammunition, according to the Howard County Police Department Twitter account." Updates indicate sedan may have fled with shooter.  Employees of shops locked in back rooms. Helicopter landed on roof. UPDATE  NBC in D.C. reports that the man found near the gun shop was "the suspect." Two store employees killed, five injured.
