EDGEWOOD, Md. (AP) -- 4:10 p.m.

A police chief says the Maryland office park gunman had "beefs" with a man in Wilmington, Delaware, and shot him twice.

Wilmington Police Chief Robert Tracy said Wednesday afternoon that the shooting victim is at a hospital and is expected to survive. He says the victim was able to tell police that 37-year-old Radee Labeeb Prince shot him.

Prince is also accused of earlier shooting five of his co-workers in Maryland, killing three of them. The other two are in critical condition.

Tracy says authorities have not heard or seen Prince since the shooting about 10:45 a.m. He says officers chased him briefly but then lost him.

3:45 p.m.

A man who works near a used car lot where a shooting took place in Wilmington, Delaware, says he heard a pop and saw a woman run out of the business' office.

Authorities say a gunman who killed three co-workers at a Maryland office complex Wednesday is also responsible for the shooting in Delaware. It's not clear if anyone was hurt in the Delaware shooting.

The witness spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because he feared retaliation while the suspect was at large.

The witness said a man inside the 28th Street Auto Sales and Service garage closed the door to the area after the woman joined him. The witness then heard a second pop, saw the garage door open and the man and woman flee. At that point, another man ran from the office, jumped into a sport utility vehicle, backed up and drove off.

Another person then emerged from the office and ran away.

2:40 p.m.

A newspaper is reporting that a man who police say killed three people and wounded two more at his Maryland workplace was fired from another job earlier this year after he attacked a co-worker.

The Baltimore Sun reports that a former co-worker of Radee Prince sought a restraining order against him in February. In an application for his request, the co-worker said Prince had punched another employee in the face and threatened employees.

The man said in his written application that Prince came back to the business several times after he was fired.

He said one time, Prince came to see him, and cursed and yelled at him. The person wrote: "I felt very threatened because he is a big guy and very aggressive on me."

The man said Prince did not get physical with him, but wrote: "I do not want to wait until he will."

A Harford County District Court judge denied the order.

2 p.m.

A man wanted in the shooting of five people at his workplace in Maryland is now suspected in a later shooting in Delaware.

The Wilmington Police Department said in a news release Wednesday afternoon that officers are searching for Radee Labeeb Prince. Police say he's wanted in both the multiple shooting early Wednesday in Edgewood, Maryland, and another shooting at midmorning in Wilmington.

Wilmington police say Prince has an address there and relatives in the area.

He was last seen driving a black 2008 GMC Acadia sport utility vehicle with Delaware tags.

1:30 p.m.

A property manager says the man police believe killed three people and wounded two others at his Maryland workplace often paid his rent late, but was always polite and cooperative.

Heather Todd said Radee Labeeb Prince has rented a 3-bedroom town house since November 2014. Todd said Prince lives there with his girlfriend.

Her company, Homes for Rent, has filed eight petitions for nonpayment of rent against the couple. But she said they always ended up paying their rent and the company never had to schedule an eviction.

Authorities say Prince shot five employees at Advanced Granite Solutions, where he also worked.

Police are still looking for Prince. They say he is armed and dangerous.

12:15 p.m.
