Police arrested a gunman suspected of killing three people and wounding two at a suburban Maryland business park before shooting another man in neighbouring Delaware.

The suspect in this incident, Radee Prince, 37, has been located and is in police custody. The police said that Prince "is a dangerous individual. This person shot six people in one day" in attacks that were not random. The police confirmed a handgun was used and two other victims were transported to trauma centers in serious condition.

When the shooter was still at large, several Edgewood- area schools were placed on lockdown, while the nearby set of popular Netflix show "House of Cards" was also reportedly secured.

On October 1, a gunman in a 32nd-floor casino hotel room rained fire down on concert-goers in Las Vegas, killing 58 and wounding more than 500. It was the deadliest shooting in recent US history.

The authorities said Prince was associated with the company, Advanced Granite Solutions, where the first shooting occurred, near Baltimore. Police were investigating Prince's connection with the firm, where all five victims of the first shooting were employed .

Variety magazine reported that the set of "House of Cards," which is partly filmed in Maryland, was placed on lockdown while police searched for the shooter.

The executive producer of the series, Dana Brunetti, addressed the incident in a Facebook post.

The incident was the latest mass shooting in a country where such killings have become tragically commonplace. To date in 2017 there have been 286 mass shootings -- nearly one per day -- according to the online Gun Violence Archive.

"Shooting near House of Cards set," Brunetti wrote.

Some of the school lockdowns were later lifted, according to Harford County Public Schools.
