BEL AIR, Md. (WJZ) — Radee Prince, the man accused of opening fire on his co-workers at a granite business in Edgewood in 2017, killing three people and injuring two more, has been found guilty.

Prince had been charged with three counts of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder.

The jury will meet again on Thursday to deliberate whether he should be held criminally responsible.

Prince’s trial began earlier this month in Harford County. His lawyers argued he’s not criminally responsible — an insanity defense — and that Prince was picked on while at work, but prosecutors said the shootings were premeditated, calling Prince a cold-blooded killer.

Throughout the trial on Wednesday, jurors heard testimony from a sheriff’s investigator who collected evidence and testified there were five shots fired at specific targets.

Another responding officer described what he saw upon arrival as something like “a scene from a horror movie.”

A former coworker, who was not injured in the shooting, testified that Prince was a hard-worker and a very good machine operator.

After the shooting at Advanced Granite Solutions shortly before 9 a.m. on October 18, 2017, Prince fled to Delaware where he shot another acquaintance in the head at a car dealership. Police arrested him in Newark, Delaware, later that day.

Prince was previously sentenced in the Delaware case. During sentencing in that case, Prince told the judge he needed treatment for mental illness.

Prince could receive a life sentence in the Harford county shooting.

    What is it with black people? Every time something happens to them, gun down people,, get shot by the police while they are brandishing a weapon the families say they have mental problems. So what I see is all blacks have mental problems from what they say.
