COLUMBIA, Md. — A spokeswoman for the company that owns a store in Columbia Mall where a gunman killed two employees before fatally shooting himself says it will reopen.

Kat Spellman, a spokeswoman for Zumiez, a skateboarding and snowboarding store, said in an email Thursday that the company plans to reopen the store in mid to late May.

Two employees at Zumiez, 21-year-old Brianna Benlolo and 25-year-old Tyler Johnson, were killed Jan. 25. Police say 19-year-old Darion Aguilar shot the two workers and then turned the gun on himself.

Police say the store where 3 people were found dead is called Zumiez. It is in the mall's C section on the upper level.
