The community is coming together after five people were shot, three of them dying, at a shooting at Advance Granite Solutions in Edgewood. 

Dozens of family, loved ones and supporters gathered just around the corner at the park next to the Exxon gas station off Route 24. 

This comes after law enforcement in two states are reporting that six people were shot, three dead, after targeted shootings Wednesday morning. 

Deputies say Radee Labeeb Prince, 37, is the suspect in these shootings. 

Prince reportedly went into where he works, Advanced Granite Solutions in Edgewood, Maryland, and shot the five people with a handgun.

Last night the manager of the Advanced Granite Solutions, Ibrahim Kucuk, spoke to the group. He thanked the first responders who put their life on the line and expressing sorrow for so much loss yesterday.

He says the group of very few co-workers knew each other intimately,

"We have worked together with these wonderful people for years in a peaceful setting. The Ags family, our friends and our community are lifting up our lost members in our prayers."

Many friends and family members too grief stricken to come out Wednesday night and said they will have a statement sometime today.

Prince is also a suspect in a shooting in Delaware.
