House of Cards set shut down after nearby shooting

House of Cards starring Kevin Spacey and Robin WrightThe House of Cards set outside of Baltimore, Maryland was shut down this morning due to a shooting just one mile away.

“We have been in touch with local authorities and are aware of a shooting situation that happened about a mile away from the House of Cards set. Production on the show has not been impacted,” Netflix and Media Rights Capital said in a joint statement to Variety.

Five employees of Advanced Granite Solutions were shot -- three are dead and two are in critical condition. The shooter has been identified as Radee L. Prince, 37, who worked for the company as a machine operator. He's also being sought in connection to a shooting that occurred shortly afterwards at a car dealership where he shot one man, then fled. The victim was able to identify Prince to police by name.

Harford County sheriff Jeffrey Gahler said during a press conference this afternoon: "There’s an individual out there on the loose who’s committed one of the most heinous acts in our county, we certainly consider him armed and dangerous."

Many location scenes for the political drama House of Cards, starring Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, are filmed in Maryland. Filming is expected to resume tomorrow. ~Alexandra Heilbron

Update: Wilmington Police Chief Robert J. Tracy said the suspect was caught at 7:05 p.m. Wednesday night (Oct. 18) near a high school in Newark, Delaware. He was carrying a .380 handgun and was quickly taken down by police when he tried to flee on foot.

Police have released more details, saying Prince was scheduled to work at Advanced Granite Solutions on Wednesday morning, but when he arrived, he pulled out a gun, killing fellow employees Bayarsaikhan Tudev, 53; Jose Hidalgo Romero, 34; and Enis Mrvoljak, 48.

    They say there's at least one shooting per day in the States. Not sure if the problem is guns or mental health issues but either way, they should figure it out.

    Coincidence, that a nearby shooting close to a show about the President and White House / US Gov prompts them to shut down. They are showing some action about the shotting. But in real life it isn't happening. The Gov doesn't shut down to discuss it. They don't stay up all night to work on gun control laws or mental health laws. How about affordable health care and affordable medication so people can get help they need?

    This is why I like it where I live. Gun control! The right to bare arms was written over 100 years ago. When society evolves, so should laws.

    Most guns used in America are used to kill gang members or innocent people not to kill the ones who are doing the killing – because most mass shooting killers end up either killing themselves or surrender to those trying to arrest them! Tell me what good of having a gun in the Las Vegas shooting would of been most of the crowd thought the shooter was at ground level & would not have been able to shoot the real shooter because of the height - distance & angle he was away from them plus they would have just took out their guns to kill each other thinking they were killing the shooter making the death toll higher! US-America has changed their motto from - In God we Trust - to - In Guns & Trump we Trust! God told me it is not only the shooter who is responsible for all the deaths & casualties that happen by gun fire but it is also the ones - who created the gun - builded it - sold it – etc. God used the game of hockey to explain this to me as it is not just the one who shoots & scores that gets credit for the goal but all the people who pass him the puck! So if you are doing God's will you will be rewarded in heaven & if you are doing satan's will you will be rewarded in hell! & by the way more people died each day from auto related deaths then wars so guess who but it on the persons heart to create automobiles etc. Not God he came to set us free from death & distruction but satan came to kill & destroy! Now more than ever we need God's Help to protect ourselves from ourselves. - Hosea 4-6 - My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. "Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, - 1st Love God then love your neighbour as yourself - I also will ignore your children.- Guess what if you can't love God you will not be able to love your neighbour or yourself! When God took His spiritual hands off of the people in the bible they turn on each other killing their own people - 1 Samuel 14:20 + Judges 7:22 + 2 Chronicles 20:23 + Isaiah 19:2 + Ezekiel 38:21 - now do you think - this is God's Love causing theses people to turn against each other or Satan's hate for man! They even ate their own children when God drew back His Spirit. Read your Bible. Not to long ago a homosexual killed & ate his own partner & just recently a married Russian couple are believed to have killed & eaten 30 people over time - so was this God's Love that caused them to do this – I love you so much I could eat you – how often have you heard people say that! Have you seen the 1st Kingsman: The Secret Service movie the church scene where everyone starts killing each other - God told me that is what happens when He takes His spirit away from us – we will start killing each other! That is what happen to Jesus - Matthew 21:9 - one moment everyone was wanting Him to be their king saying - Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest! - hosanna comes from a Hebrew word meaning - save now or save us, we pray - then later when God took His spirit from the crowd they cried out crucify him, crucify him - Luke 23 - Matthew 27 - Satan put Mr.Trump in the white house to start another civil war in USA. A war of hate of man - man against man - Satans hate of man for not worshipping him! Satan is the God of this world who is causing man to hate his neighbour - not Jesus - but Yeshua does want to be the God of your world! Say yes to Jesus! Someday we will all be judged by what we say - Matthew – 12-33-37 - Either make the tree good & its fruit good or make the tree bad & its fruit bad, for the tree is known by its fruit. Offspring of vipers! How can you who are evil speak good things? For from the fullness of the heart the mouth speaks. A good man from a good treasure brings good things, & an evil man from evil treasure brings evil things. For I say to you that every idle word that people will speak, they will give an answer for it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified & by your words you will be condemned. - said Jesus - Now - This message is for those Trump supports & those who think & act like him – like Alex Jones - Ann Coulter - I know you think you are part of the solution just like Mr.Trump does but the truth is your kind of hate & self-centeredness is the problem with the world & it fuels every form of hatred & terrorism in this world & it will destroy you someday just as it has been destroying those who love to destroy anything they do not understand or want to! Like the world's environment! You all think you are a winner because you are better then others that you do not understand & are able to. All you want to do is tear them apart so your view stands! People like you need a dose of God's Love & wisdom before it is too late to turn from your hurtful ways! Jesus said But I say, if you are even angry with someone, you are subject to judgment! If you call someone an idiot, you are in danger of being brought before the court. And if you curse someone, you are in danger of the fires of hell - Matthew 5:22 – NLT Plus - Proverbs 15 - A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger - The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness. - The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil & the good. - A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit. A fool despiseth his father's instruction: but he that regardeth reproof is prudent. - In the house of the righteous is much treasure: but in the revenues of the wicked is trouble. - The lips of the wise disperse knowledge: but the heart of the foolish doeth not so! & Proverbs 23:9 - Speak not in the ears of a fool: for he will despise the wisdom of thy words.

    John Plum. Only thing that’s killed more people than guns is religion!

    John Plum: we are truly fortunate that we have gun control. It protects us from people who clearly have a mental illness called hyperreligiousity. We are also fortunate to have universal health care so that persons experiencing mental illness are able to get the care and treatment they need. Best of luck to you.
