Three people were killed and two others were wounded after a shooting at an office park in U.S. state of Maryland, authorities said Wednesday.

The shooting took place at around 9:00 a.m. at Emmorton Business Park in Edgewood, roughly 50 kilometers northeast of Baltimore, according to Harford County Sherriff's Office.

Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler told a press conference that the shooter was identified as 37-year-old Radee Labeeb Prince.

Prince used a handgun in the shooting and is considered armed and dangerous, Gahler said.

Police are looking for the suspect who is believed to be in a black GMC Acadia with Delaware plates.

All five victims appear to be employees of Advanced Granite Solutions and the two wounded are in serious condition, according to Gahler.

It appeared to be a targeted attack, limited to that business, he said.

Local officials said five schools in the Edgewood area were placed on lockdown.
