his motive is unknown. let's show you video that we shot earlier today outside this business. it was at 8:58 this morning, the sheriff's office says they received a 911 call for a shooting inside a business in the em erton business park, off i95 and edgewood maryland. inside deputies found five victims, three dead. the two others air lifted to baltimore shock trauma where as of two hours ago, they were still in critical conditioning all five are employees of advanced granite. kevin doyle was in back of the business when he says he heard a commotion. >> i was behind the building with my tools and saw three spanish guys running back from behind the building screaming. i could tell something wasn't right. i asked if they needed help. they said call 911 someone is shooting next door. pretty much it. i called 911 and they scattered. went different directions. i started walking over that way and they said don't go, he's still over there. >> did you end up seeing him or this dark suv lea
6:02 pm
people started coming out of the building. that was about it. it was chaos. >> reporter: investigators say that they identified prince very quickly because people saw prince and were able to tell authorities exactly who they should be looking for. he's 38 years old. and as we mentioned, he's believed to still be driving the black gmc arcadia with delaware plates. a fact confirmed by the hartford county sheriff was that he also, of course, had driven to wilmington delaware, where, which, we're going to get to in just a second. but the sheriff said that it only takes a few minutes to get there. here's what the sheriff had to say earlier today. >> only takes 20 minutes to get to wilmington from here. certainly, i oh wouldn't say be aware,
6:03 pm
this incident to have targeted his workplace, i don't know what relationship is up there. i still believe he's probably targeting for a specific reason and not general. that doesn't mean he's he's an arm killer out there, certainly, he is a danger to anyone he encounters. >> now, in last few hours, we've learned that he was fired from another granite business about ten minutes down the road. he was fired from that business after the owner said he punched an employee in the face. he came back to that business several times to complain about being fired. the owner then tried to take out a peace order against him, but that was denied by a hartford county judge. marina marraco tracked down one of the employees who was punched in the face by this man, she'll have that report a little bit later. we want to take you to wilmington delaware where prince was believed to have shot another man there in the city earlier today right a
