BETHESDA, Md. (TheBlaze/AP) -- Police say a two people are dead and two others are wounded after two shootings at a mall and a shopping center in the Washington suburbs.
Montgomery County police spokesman Capt. Paul Starks said Friday a man has died following the shooting at the mall.
Police said a woman was shot earlier at a grocery store about 5 miles away. Police later tweeted that the woman has died. It's not clear if the shootings are connected.
Starks says police are still looking at the possibility that the two shootings in Montgomery County are related, and they are also looking at the possibility that they are related to a fatal shooting at a high school Thursday in neighboring Prince George's County.
Police said no one is in custody, but they are looking at a person of interest.
