Baltimore County police have identified the victim of the fatal shooting Monday night at Towson Town Center.

Rodney Vest Pridget, 19, who lives in the Baltimore area, was found dead of gunshot wounds about 6:22 p.m. near a service entrance to Nordstrom at the mall, investigators said Tuesday morning.

Detectives do not believe the shooting was a random act, but officials said they were not providing additional details at this time due to the continuing investigation. Detectives are investigating a number of leads, including video footage recovered from the mall, police said.
