A woman named Snochia Moseley has been identified as the shooter and worker at a Rite Aid distribution center in Aberdeen, Maryland who killed several of her coworkers.
It has been confirmed that Moseley died at a nearby hospital due to a self-inflicted gunshot to the head.
The female mass murdered took the lives of three innocent employees and injured four more who are currently hospitalized.
Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler said he is not ready to release the names of the deceased co-workers at the moment because their families have not been notified.
According to the police, Moseley was a temporary employee at the distribution center which is located in the Enterprise Business Park near Perryman Road.
Moseley arrived at work on Thursday morning as usual at the Rite Aid distribution center, and minutes later she pulled out her weapon and went on a killing spree.
The 26-year-old killer legally purchased the gun, a 9mm Glock, which she used to massacre her colleagues.
Via Facebook, it was revealed that Snochia Teosha Olivia Moseley, who was born in New Jersey was quiet and had a sister.
She wrote the following about her personality: “Pretty cool, mellow type, silly, Party, Turn up, but social and sometimes quiet and to myself type of personality.”
Maryland politicians have taken very different approaches while addressing the deadly event.
Baltimore County Executive Don Mohler released a statement saying that mass killings cannot be normalized in America and action should be taken.
Mohler stated: “Once again, another tragic act of gun violence has hit close to home as mass shootings have sadly become the norm. Our hearts and prayers go out to the victims of such a senseless act of violence, and to their families. But these words have begun to ring hollow as we have had 25 mass shootings in September and more than 150 this year. Enough is enough. We’ve never backed down from challenges in our nation, and we can’t back down now. If we pass this cancer onto the next generation, the blood will be on our hands.”
Larry Hogan, the Maryland Governor, posted a tweet where he shared his prayers to those affected by the deadly shooting especially the police and emergency workers who rushed to the scene.
Hogan tweeted:”Our prayers are with all those who have been impacted, including our first responders.”
The authorities do not yet have the motive for the horrific incident.
