Two people were killed and one injured in a shooting at a Royal Farms convenience store and gas station in Essex just before 7 a.m. Sunday, Baltimore County police said. About 15 minutes later, police were called to an apartment complex 5 minutes away for a report of a fire and a person shot. It's unclear whether the two incidents are related at this time.
