Aberdeen, Maryland – A temporary female employee opened fire at a Rite Aid distribution centre shooting seven, four fatally, including herself.
Harford County Sheriff’s office identified the shooter as Snochia Moseley, 26, of Baltimore County.

“Deputies, officers, and first responders immediately responded to assist any victims and locate the suspect. At this time we can confirm multiple wounded and multiple fatalities,” the sheriff’s office reported in multiple posts on Facebook.
By 10 a.m the shooting spree was over.
There were hundreds of employees at the pharmaceutical company’s distribution centre at the time.
Sheriff Jeffrey R. Gahler said in a video stream on Facebook:
“She had reported for her workday as usual, and around 9 a.m. the shooting began, striking victims both outside the business and inside the facility. We do not at this time have a motive for this senseless crime.”
“7 people have been shot including the shooter. 3 people are are expected to survive. 2 fatalities at the scene. 1 at the hospital. The suspect was fatally injured by a self inflicted gun shot wound”
