WOODLAWN, Md. (AP) — Police say a Maryland man went on a rampage over the weekend, shooting or stabbing to death three of his neighbors and setting his home on fire before responding officers fatally shot him.

A Sunday news release from the Baltimore County Police Department identified the victims and offered the clearest picture so far of what the department says unfolded on a residential street in suburban Baltimore early Saturday morning.

Police have not provided a possible motive or details about what preceded the attack.

Multiple neighbors who spoke with news outlets described the man as having a long history of erratic and threatening behavior.
