Maryland man fatally shoots parents, grocery store customers before turning gun on himself in deadly rampage

A Maryland man went on a deadly rampage over the weekend where he gunned down four people, including his parents, before setting his apartment on fire and killing himself, authorities said. Authorities said they “have no idea” what prompted Joshua Green’s Sunday killing spree. “As to why this occurred, we have no idea yet,” Baltimore County Police Col. Andre Davis said at a Monday news conference. “Our homicide detectives are tirelessly investigating a motive, but it appears that the shooter acted alone.”

Investigators said Green, 27, killed his parents — Douglas Green, 58, and Olivia Green, 62 — in their Baltimore County home before going to the Royal Farms convenience store just before 7 a.m. Once there, Green fatally shot Alpha Smith, 62, who was sitting in her car in the store’s parking lot and Silvesta Daye, 43, a customer inside the store. A 22-year-old man was also shot but was taken to a hospital in stable condition. After the shooting, Green returned to his home and set it ablaze before fatally shooting himself, police said. Authorities discovered the bodies of Green’s parents when they went to their home to notify them of their son’s death. No suspects were being sought in the case, authorities said. Green legally purchased the weapon used in the deadly attacks, police said.
