One person is dead and two others are injured following a shooting late Thursday outside a restaurant at a mall in Maryland, police said.

The shooting happened outside the Silver Diner at the Woodmore Towne Centre shopping mall in Glenarden, police chief Philip O'Donnell told reporters.

“I believe two people were shooting at each other,” O'Donnell said. He also said the shooting did not appear to be random.

It wasn't clear whether the shooting had any ties to the restaurant. The diner said on social media that it was “shocked” and “dismayed” by the shooting.

“Thankfully our Associates and Guests are safe. To our knowledge the events occurred outside the diner,” the Silver Diner tweeted.

Rien Green, 29, of Bowie died. One victim is hospitalized with critical injuries. The third has been released after suffering non-life-threatening injuries.

Prince George’s County police investigate homicides in Glenarden.
