COLUMBIA, MD - Police have identified the shooter in the Maryland mall shooting as a 19-year-old teenager from College Park.

Howard County Police Chief Bill McMahon said Darion Marcus Aguilar arrived at the mall after 10 a.m. on Saturday and shot to death two people at a store on the upper level before killing himself.

McMahon said police are trying to determine whether Aguilar knew either of the victims.

Police identified the victims 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 .

Police spent Saturday night disarming homemade explosives found with a shooter. The attack took place at a skateboard shop called Zumiez on the upper level of the mall, according to Howard County Police Chief William J. McMahon.

 McMahon said authorities ran into difficulty in identifying Aguilar because of concerns over the explosives.

Five other people were injured, none seriously. Police still haven't determined a motive.
