    The skateboard store where two employees were killed earlier this year will reopen next month.

    Zumiez says it made the decision to reopen its Columbia Mall location after consulting with the families of the victims.

    On Jan. 25, Darion Marcus Aguilar, 19, entered the Zumiez store on the upper level of the mall and fatally shot 21-year-old Brianna Benlolo and 25-year-old Tyler Johnson, before turning his shotgun on himself.

    Last month, Howard County Police revealed Aguilar was fascinated with the Columbine shooting, even timing his attack for the minute the Columbine shooting began.

    Zumiez did not set an exact date to reopen but says it will be in mid-May.
