Fatal Shooting at Running Brook 7-Eleven

Several news sites are running this item about a shooting in Running Brook:

COLUMBIA, Md. (AP) - Howard County police are investigating a fatal shooting at a convenience store in Columbia.

It happened about 3:10 this morning at a 7-11 in the 5700 block of Columbia Road. Police say a 40-year-old woman working as a clerk was wounded and died later at Shock Trauma in Baltimore.
