Police disable devices found in Md. gunman's bag

COLUMBIA, Md. (AP) - Police say they disabled crude attempts at explosive devices that were found in a bag carried by a gunman to a deadly shooting at a Maryland mall.

Police say the gunman shot two other people and then himself Saturday morning in Columbia, Md.

A news release late Saturday night says investigators searched the gunman's bag inside the store where two employees were shot. They found and disabled what they described as "crude devices that appeared to be an attempt at making explosives using fireworks."

The mall will remain closed Sunday and police will use dogs to search the mall overnight, which is standard procedure.

Police say they have tentatively identified the gunman but are declining to identify him while they follow up on leads.
