Maryland Mall Reopens, Still No Motive for Shooting

January 27, 2014  | 

The Mall in Columbia, Md., reopened Monday afternoon, allowing customers to return to the shopping center for the first time since a deadly weekend shooting, the Baltimore Sun reports.

The mall was quieter than usual Monday. A simple memorial stands in front of a pool at the center of the mall, and customers will be asked to float flowers and leave written memories in a book.

Howard County Police Chief Bill McMahon said his officers are working to uncover a motive in the shooting. He said he imagines workers will feel safer if it turns out that the shooter and victims knew one another, rather than the attack being random.

McMahon urged store staff to try to get back to normal as soon as they could, but acknowledged that normal will be different now.

Something in my gut says this is either a drug-mess or a sex-mess... or both. I'm confident (for no particular reason) this will be a situation in which those involved knew each other. The test will be in what The Media says when the investigation is completed. Don't hear anything = they knew each other. Hear The Media yelling about it = they didn't know each other.
