A man accused of shooting three individuals at a convenience store in Maryland, killing two of them, also shooting his parents, and set his apartment on fire before he would kill himself, police said.
Joshua Green, 27, was identified Sunday night as the suspect in the fatal shooting at a Royal Farms store in Essex, Baltimore County police said in a statement.
Police also believe Green shot and killed his parents who were discovered dead at their home in an unincorporated part of the county called Baldwin.
Officials said Green left the convenience store and set his apartment on fire. He was later found dead of what seemed to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. It was not clear that when his parents died but police said both seemed to have been shot.
Daniel Brennaman, 73, a neighbor who lives two doors down from the home where the bodies were discovered, said he observed a police cruiser and saw a photographer out in front of the house when he was walking his dog during Sunday evening.
Brennaman said he has exchanged greetings and small discussions with the husband and wife who live in that Manor Road home but couldn’t remember their names and didn’t know them personally.
The medical condition of the person who was wounded at the convenience store wasn’t released. Police said the person was making a recovery at a local hospital.
Officials believe all three shootings are connected and they were not searching for any other suspects.
