Man wanted for Md. mass shooting was arrested 42 times, convicted of 15 counts of burglary
Thirty-seven-year-old Radee Prince, who is suspected of shooting five people and killing three in Edgewood, Maryland, has been in trouble before.
According to court documents, Prince was convicted of 15 counts of burglary back in 2003 and spent some time in jail. All total, Prince has 42 arrests in Delaware including probation violations.
Three years ago, Police found what they say was an illegal gun and ammunition in his car. Eventually, all charges were dropped in that case.
In February, Prince's former boss filed a restraining order against him in Cecil County, Maryland but the judge didn't grant it.
ABC 7 News Reporter Brad Bell helped tracked down that protection order that was filed by Prince's former boss. It states Prince was fired after punching a co-worker in the face. His boss told the court he felt threatened and Prince yelled and cursed at him.
His former boss also stated he didn't want to wait until Prince attacked him so that's why he asked for protection. The judge denied that order back in February.
According to Prince’s on-line resume, he has worked at 10 different places over the past 14 years. Seven of those jobs in the state of Washington and three since he moved to Delaware in 2014.
Prince says he's an extremely hard worker and has won numerous awards for his work ethic.
