COLUMBIA, Md. (AP) — The Maryland mall where two people were fatally shot last week says it will hold a moment of silence in remembrance of the victims.

The moment of silence for Brianna Benlolo and Tyler Johnson at The Mall in Columbia will take place Saturday at 11:15 a.m. It marks a week since a gunman fatally shot the two skateboard shop employees and then shot himself. The mall will also hand out white lapel ribbons to patrons as they enter the mall.

The mall re-opened Monday with memorials for Benlolo and Johnson. Two memorial funds have also been set up to honor their memories.

Police say they've found no connection between the shooter, 19-year-old Darion Aguilar, and his victims.
