In the wake of Howard County Police saying definitively Wednesday that there was no "domestic" motive for the Columbia Mall shooting in January that left three people dead, WBAL apologized for its reporting on the story. Most of that bad reporting came from John Patti, an anchor and reporter at WBAL Radio. His erroneous reports were also carried on WBAL-TV. “Columbia Mall shooting domestic. Former boyfriend of Zumiez clerk shot her and new boyfriend also an employee of store," Patti tweeted on Jan. 25. Patti reported more details of an alleged relationship on WBAL-TV, saying “this is indeed a domestic incident” and that the two victims were “engaged to be married.” But none of it was true, according the report from the Howard County Police today.

Darion Marcus Aguilar had no connections to his victims and modeled his attack on the Mall in Columbia after the Columbine High School shooting, Howard County police revealed Wednesday.

McMahon said Aguilar acted alone during the attack and planning. Aguilar, of College Park, killed Zumiez employees Brianna Benlolo, 21, and Tyler Johnson, 25, before killing himself.
