Three people have been killed in a shooting at a shopping centre in Maryland in the US.

Howard County Police urged people inside the suburban Columbia Mall "to stay in place".

They said one of the dead was "located near gun and ammunition".

Reports suggest the centre, about 45 minutes outside Washington DC, was on "lockdown" because of an "active shooter situation". The centre is a popular weekend shopping destination.

The mall of about 200 stores in Howard County, which has an indoor carousel ride and play area, is a popular weekend destination for families and young children.
