Edgewood, Maryland: A gunman opened fire at a Maryland office park on Wednesday morning, killing three co-workers and wounding two others, authorities and the business owner said.

A manhunt was underway for 37-year-old Radee Labeeb Prince, who was considered armed and dangerous.

Harford county sheriff Jeffrey Gahler said Prince shot his victims with a handgun and fled the Emmorton Business Park in Edgewood, which is about 40km northeast of Baltimore. The sheriff did not release a motive for the shooting.

The victims and the suspect worked for Advanced Granite Solutions, the owner of the home improvement company said. Prince has been an employee for four months, working as a machine operator, owner Barak Caba said in a brief telephone interview.

Caba was shaken and would not provide additional details.

The wounded were in critical condition, according to a spokeswoman for the University of Maryland Medical Centre's R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Centre in Baltimore.

Maryland governor Larry Hogan said the survivors had gunshot wounds to the head.
