On Saturday, Ismaaiyl Brinsley shot his ex-girlfriend in Baltimore County, then headed north with the intention of killing police officers. (He later shot and killed two.)

If you were on Twitter last night at around 5pm, you might have noticed a bunch of vague and troubling reports that Under Armour’s Locust Point headquarters were under lockdown. Unconfirmed reports of a shooter brought SWAT Teams in full riot gear to the UA building, and several South Baltimore streets were shut down for hours.

Details are still sketchy, but the tragic overall picture is clear enough:  early this morning several Price George’s County police officers responded to a shooting in College Park, Maryland, and found three young men — all students at the University of Maryland — who had been shot, two of them fatally. According to evidence on scene, one of the three roommates set a small fire in the house’s basement, perhaps to draw his fellow roommates to the basement. All three students left the house together, which is when the gunman began firing. After shooting both men, he went into the house’s backyard and shot himself.

When Alex Ulrich was killed in a double shooting in Baltimore last week, the city sat up and took notice. A vigil at the Washington Monument drew hundreds of mourners who celebrated Ulrich’s life, denounced violence, and honored the shooting’s other victim, popular Mount Vernonite Larry Peterson (who was critically injured but is recovering).
