Four people, including a shooter, are dead after a temporary employee opened fire at a Rite Aid distribution center in Aberdeen, Maryland, then turned her gun on herself, police said.
The Harford County Sheriff's Office said the woman had arrived on time for work at 9 a.m., and the first report of shots fired occurred at 9:06 a.m.
Authorities say they haven't yet determined a motive for the shooting.
Three victims are dead and three others are injured after a temporary employee opened fire inside a Rite Aid distribution center in Aberdeen, Maryland, then fatally shot herself in the head, the Harford Sheriff's office said Thursday.
Police said the shooter, 26-year-old Snochia Moseley of Baltimore, arrived for her usual work day at 9 a.m., shortly before shooting at other employees using a 9mm Glock handgun. Authorities added that they haven't yet found a motive, and are still establishing a timeline of events.
Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler said at a news conference earlier on Thursday that no shots were fired by police, and authorities believe there is "no additional threat" at the scene.
Gahler said police received a report of shots fired around 9:06 a.m., and officers arrived at the scene within five minutes.
Rite Aid representative Susan Henderson told the Associated Press the shooting occurred at a "support facility" on the distribution center's campus. She said the facility was adjacent to a larger building.

"We are deeply saddened by the events that transpired this morning at the Liberty support facility," the statement said, referring to the building in which the shooting took place. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those involved in this tragic incident, as well as their loved ones."
Footage from local media showed a massive law-enforcement response to the scene. Sheriff's deputies swarmed the area, and the Maryland state police also arrived, as did special agents from Baltimore's Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the Baltimore branch of the FBI.

Fang said he was waiting for the patients' families to be notified before providing details of the patients' conditions.

Another witness who lives nearby, identified only as Bo, told the outlet that the shooting took place inside a warehouse and that there were at least five victims.
