COLUMBIA, Md. (AP) -- Police say a 19-year-old from suburban Washington was the gunman in yesterday's deadly shootings at a Maryland shopping mall.

Police say Darion Marcus Aguilar of College Park, Md., used a 12-gauge shotgun to kill two people at a store in the Mall of Columbia before killing himself. Police say it took hours to identify the shooter since he was carrying ammunition and a backpack containing crude homemade explosives.

Police are trying to determine whether Aguilar knew either of the victims.

The victims have been identified as 21-year-old Brianna Benlolo of College Park, Md., and 25-year-old Tyler Johnson of Ellicott City, Md. Both worked at a skateboard shop called Zumiez.
