7:35 p.m.

The suspect in the shooting of six people in Maryland and Delaware, including three who died, is in custody.

The Harford County Sheriff's Office in Maryland tweeted Wednesday night that 37-year-old Radee Labeeb Prince was "apprehended a short time ago in Delaware by ATF and allied law enforcement agencies."

Police say Prince shot five co-workers early Wednesday in Edgewood, Maryland, then drove to Wilmington, Delaware, and shot a man he knew at an auto sales and service business. Three of Prince's co-workers at Advanced Granite Solutions died, and two are in critical condition.

7 p.m.

Police in Delaware say the car driven by a man authorities say shot six people he knew in Maryland and Delaware, killing three of them, has been recovered unoccupied. The suspect has not been found.

A spokeswoman for Wilmington, Delaware, police says found the vehicle driven by 37-year-old Radee Labeeb Prince was found about 6 p.m. Wednesday outside the city, in New Castle County.

Police say after Prince shot five people in Edgewood, Maryland, he drove to Wilmington, where, authorities say, he shot a man he knew at a used car lot.

Overhead highway signs displayed a description of Prince's black 2008 GMC Acadia sport utility vehicle to aid the search for him.

5:10 p.m.

A man who police say shot six people he knew in Maryland and Delaware, killing three of them, had scared a previous employer so badly that the man tried to get a restraining order against him.

Radee Labeeb Prince remained at large Wednesday after the morning shootings.

A Harford County judge denied the February request by Philip Siason of JPS Marble and Granite. The judge said Siason didn't meet the required burden of proof for the order.

Siason had told the court Prince punched a co-worker and was fired. Prince later told Siason he'd been provoked and wanted his job back. He also sought unemployment payments. Siason notified an agency inquiring about unemployment benefits that Prince had been fired and that he was working for another company.

Siason said that after that, Prince "came to see me, cursed and yelled ... I felt very threatened because he is a big guy and very aggressive on me."

Siason told the court that he was aware that Prince illegally possessed guns.

Saison said Prince "did not hurt me physically, but I do not want to wait 'til he will. Plus, he already punched a co-worker."

The suspect in a Maryland office shooting that left three people dead has an extensive criminal history in neighboring Delaware.

Wilmington Police Chief Robert Tracy said at a press conference Wednesday that 37-year-old Radee Prince has been arrested 42 times in Delaware alone.

Tracy said the criminal record includes 15 felony convictions, four misdemeanor convictions and numerous arrests for violations of probation.

Prince is also accused of shooting five of his co-workers Wednesday in an office park in Harford County, Maryland, killing three of them. The other two are in critical condition.

Police say Prince then drove to Delaware and shot a man at a Wilmington car dealership with whom he had a dispute. ___

A police chief says the Maryland office park gunman had "beefs" with a man in Wilmington, Delaware, and shot him twice.

Wilmington Police Chief Robert Tracy said Wednesday afternoon that the shooting victim is at a hospital and is expected to survive. He says the victim was able to tell police that 37-year-old Radee Labeeb Prince shot him.

Prince is also accused of earlier shooting five of his co-workers in Maryland, killing three of them. The other two are in critical condition.

Tracy says authorities have not heard or seen Prince since the shooting about 10:45 a.m. He says officers chased him briefly but then lost him.

3:45 p.m.

A man who works near a used car lot where a shooting took place in Wilmington, Delaware, says he heard a pop and saw a woman run out of the business' office.

Authorities say a gunman who killed three co-workers at a Maryland office complex Wednesday is also responsible for the shooting in Delaware. It's not clear if anyone was hurt in the Delaware shooting.

The witness spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because he feared retaliation while the suspect was at large.

The witness said a man inside the 28th Street Auto Sales and Service garage closed the door to the area after the woman joined him. The witness then heard a second pop, saw the garage door open and the man and woman flee. At that point, another man ran from the office, jumped into a sport utility vehicle, backed up and drove off.

Another person then emerged from the office and ran away.

3:15 p.m.

Police say a man suspected of killing three co-workers in Maryland later shot an "associate" at used car lot about an hour away in Wilmington, Delaware.

Wilmington police spokeswoman Stephanie Castellani says the shooting at midmorning Wednesday in Delaware's largest city "was not a random act." She did not release the extent of the victim's injuries.

Police along the Northeast corridor are looking for 37-year-old Radee Labeeb Prince, of Elkton, Maryland. Authorities in Harford County, Maryland, said he shot five people at Advanced Granite Solutions just before 9 a.m., then drove to Wilmington.

As police comb the area looking for Prince, there is a heavy police presence along Interstate 95 in both states. Cruisers are stationed at cut-throughs in the median, and overhead highway signs are displaying a description of Prince's black 2008 GMC Acadia sport utility vehicle and its Delaware license plate of PC64273.

2:40 p.m.

A newspaper is reporting that a man who police say killed three people and wounded two more at his Maryland workplace was fired from another job earlier this year after he attacked a co-worker.

The Baltimore Sun reports that a former co-worker of Radee Prince sought a restraining order against him in February. In an application for his request, the co-worker said Prince had punched another employee in the face and threatened employees.

The man said in his written application that Prince came back to the business several times after he was fired.

He said one time, Prince came to see him, and cursed and yelled at him. The person wrote: "I felt very threatened because he is a big guy and very aggressive on me."

The man said Prince did not get physical with him, but wrote: "I do not want to wait until he will."

A Harford County District Court judge denied the order.

The article didn't identify the co-worker or the business.

A man wanted in the shooting of five people at his workplace in Maryland is now suspected in a later shooting in Delaware.

The Wilmington Police Department said in a news release Wednesday afternoon that officers are searching for Radee Labeeb Prince. Police say he's wanted in both the multiple shooting early Wednesday in Edgewood, Maryland, and another shooting at midmorning in Wilmington.

Wilmington police say Prince has an address there and relatives in the area.

He was last seen driving a black 2008 GMC Acadia sport utility vehicle with Delaware tags.

1:30 p.m.

A property manager says the man police believe killed three people and wounded two others at his Maryland workplace often paid his rent late, but was always polite and cooperative.

Heather Todd said Radee Labeeb Prince has rented a 3-bedroom town house since November 2014. Todd said Prince lives there with his girlfriend.

Her company, Homes for Rent, has filed eight petitions for nonpayment of rent against the couple. But she said they always ended up paying their rent and the company never had to schedule an eviction.

Authorities say Prince shot five employees at Advanced Granite Solutions, where he also worked.

Police are still looking for Prince. They say he is armed and dangerous.
