COLUMBIA, Md. (AP) — A Maryland county executive says there will be a period of adjustment before life returns to normal in the community surrounding the mall where a teen gunned down two people and killed himself over the weekend.

Howard County Executive Ken Ulman said Monday morning that there will be grieving because the tragedy touched everyone.

But Ulman says it's important to get back to business. He says he'll be at the mall Monday afternoon with his wife for lunch and shopping, and he asks others to come out and send a message with their presence.

Ulman says the shooting was shocking because of the community is generally a safe place. But he calls it a lesson that the county is not immune to gun violence seen elsewhere in the country.
