Police did not know whether Aguilar was a student at the University of Maryland. Police also said they have yet to determine whether the shooter had a relationship with the victims -- two store employees at the mall.

Police said that Aguilar purchased the 12 gauge shotgun he used at the mall in December. Detectives are still investigating the motive behind the shooting.

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
