COCKEYSVILLE, Md. (AP) – Police in Maryland say five people at an outdoor shopping mall were stabbed before officers shot and killed a suspect.


The Baltimore County Police Department said the victims were rushed from the Hunt Valley Towne Centre to hospitals Saturday afternoon, but they didn’t appear to suffer life-threatening wounds. The shopping center is in Cockeysville, about 15 miles north of Baltimore.


WJZ reports that witnesses said the stabbing occurred in a liquor store and involved a man who employees had asked to leave twice previously Saturday.


Police said they were called initially to a loitering complaint, which then “escalated.”
