Three killed in mass shooting in Harford County, Maryland

Three people have been killed and at least two injured in a shooting in Harford County, Maryland. The female suspect, a temporary employee at a Rite-Aid warehouse, is also dead in what appears to be suicide, authorities said.

The shooting took place in a business park in Perryman, a small town adjacent to Aberdeen and less than 30 miles northeast of Baltimore. Deputies were dispatched to the scene shortly after 9am Thursday, and the FBI and ATF responded to assist with the "active shooter situation" shortly afterwards.

The Sheriff’s office said “we can confirm multiple wounded and multiple fatalities.” The suspect was initially taken into custody and transported to the hospital in “critical condition.” She was later pronounced dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. None of the officers fired their weapons during the response, the sheriff said.

The suspect, identified as Snochia Moseley, 26, had a temporary job at the Rite-Aid distribution facility.

Video from the scene shared on social media shows a heavy police presence at the industrial park, whose tenants include Rite-Aid, Clorox, and Zenith Freight Lines. The mass shooting took place at Rite-Aid's distribution center, which employs around 1,000 people.

Armed police and federal agents have surrounded the area, and empty schoolbuses have driven in, perhaps to evacuate workers still inside.

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan said that he was closely monitoring the situation.

Harford County was the scene of another mass shooting in October 2017, this time in Edgewood, just eight miles from Perryman. 37-year-old Radee Labeeb Prince shot and killed three of his co-workers and injured two more at a local granite fabricators, and was captured after an hours-long manhunt.
