Police say an angry, homeless man fatally shot a church worker in Ellicott City and critically wounded an Episcopal priest before taking his own life.

Howard County police identified the suspect Friday as 56-year-old Douglas Franklin Jones, according Associated Press. They say he lived in the nearby woods.

Investigators found his body Thursday night in the woods near St. Peter's Episcopal Church, about 14 miles west of Baltimore. A gun was found nearby.

Fifty-nine-year-old Brenda Brewington of Ellicott City was pronounced dead Thursday evening at the church.

The church's co-rector, 62-year-old Mary-Marguerite Kohn of Halethorpe, was in critical condition Friday afternoon at Shock Trauma in Baltimore.
