BETHESDA, Md. (AP) — Police in Maryland say a woman is dead and three people are injured in shootings at a mall and a shopping center in the Washington suburbs.

Montgomery County Police Assistant Chief Darryl McSwain says three people were shot in the Westfield Montgomery Mall parking lot in Bethesda on Friday morning. He says one person was shot and two others may have been shot coming to that person’s aid. He says there’s no reason to believe the victims knew the shooter.

McSwain says a woman was shot at a grocery store about 5 miles away. Police later tweeted that the woman has died. It’s not clear if the shootings are connected.

McSwain says no one is in custody, but police are looking at a person of interest.
