A man accused of shooting five co-workers in Edgewood last year will first be tried in May in Delaware, where he also faces shooting charges.

Radee Prince, 38, is scheduled for trial May 8 on charges stemming from a shooting at a Wilmington auto shop Oct. 18, a spokesman for the Delaware Attorney General’s Office said.

Hours before the Wilmington shooting, authorities say Prince shot five co-workers — three fatally — at Advanced Granite Solutions in Edgewood. Bayarsaikhan Tudev, 53; Jose Hidalgo Romero, 34; and Enis Mrvoljak, 48, were killed. Two other workers — Enoc Villegas Sosa, 38, and Jose Roberto Flores Gillen, 37 — were wounded.

Prince was arrested later that evening after a brief foot chase near a high school in Newark, Del. Police say Prince threw a gun after spotting officers approaching him.

Prince has two other court dates scheduled before the trial, on Feb. 26 and April 23. A spokesman for the Delaware Attorney General’s Office said previously that Prince is being represented by the public defender’s office. A call to that office was not returned Friday.

The man suspected of shooting five coworkers at an Edgewood countertop business last week will be first tried in Delaware, where he was apprehended after a 10-hour manhunt, officials said.

In Delaware, Prince’s charges include first-degree attempted murder, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, possession of a firearm by a prohibited person and carrying a concealed deadly weapon. If convicted of the Delaware charges, Prince faces a possible sentence of life without parole.

In Maryland, Prince is charged with first- and second-degree murder, attempted first- and second-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault, and use of a firearm to commit a felony.
