(Newser) – The shooter who killed two workers in a Maryland mall yesterday has been identified as 19-year-old Darion Marcus Aguilar from College Park, police said today. Aguilar apparently arrived at the mall via taxi about an hour before the shooting; police still have no motive and aren't certain whether Aguilar knew his victims, reports the AP. "This should not happen at the Columbia Mall," said Howard County Police Chief Bill McMahon today, as per CNN. "This shouldn't happen anywhere."
