At least 3 killed after assailant opens fire at Maryland factory

A shooter opened fire at a manufacturing facility in northern Maryland on Thursday (June 09), killing at least three people, authorities said.

The suspect, who was not immediately identified, opened fire at Columbia Machine Inc’s factory in Smithsburg, Maryland, Fox News reported. There was no immediate word on a possible motive.

Aerials showed police and other vehicles at the scene of the shooting.

“We are actively monitoring the mass shooting in #Smithsburg right now, and our office is in contact with officials on the ground,” U.S. Representative David Trone of Maryland said on Twitter.

“If you’re local, please stay away from the area as law enforcement responds,” Trone said.

Columbia Machine supplies concrete manufacturing equipment to customers in over 100 countries, according to its website.

Smithsburg is near the Pennsylvania state line.
