Survivors of Maryland office shooting in critical condition
WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — Two people who survived an office shooting were still in critical condition Thursday morning, a day after a gunman opened fire on his co-workers at a Maryland kitchen countertop business, killing three and sending police on a 10-hour, multistate manhunt.
Radee Prince, 37, of Elkton, Maryland, shot five co-workers early Wednesday in Maryland, then drove to Wilmington, Delaware, and shot an acquaintance in the head at a used car lot, police in Maryland and Delaware said.
The two survivors of the office shooting remained in critical condition Thursday at the University of Maryland R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, said spokeswoman Karen Lancaster. She declined to release additional details on their injuries.
Wilmington Police Chief Robert Tracy said at a news conference Wednesday night that police and federal agents arrested Prince after they spotted him in the Glasgow neighborhood. He’d left his SUV near a high school and a civilian notified authorities. Officers found him nearby, and he ran about 75 feet (23 meters), throwing away a gun, before being arrested. No one was hurt in the capture.
“I even get chills talking about it because I know what it’s like when we do hunt individuals that are desperate,” Tracy said.
Tracy said the attacks were targeted and Prince knew each of his victims.
“This is a person with no conscience,” he said.
