The Harford County Sheriff’s Office on Friday identified the victims shot and killed by a woman at a Rite Aid distribution center in Aberdeen on Thursday, as well as three injured victims who survived.

Police on Thursday identified the shooter as Snochia Moseley, a 26-year-old woman from Baltimore County. She was a temporary employee at the warehouse. She started working there less than two weeks ago. Police said they found Moseley dead at the scene of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Kyle Andersen, public information specialist for the Harford County Sheriff’s Office, confirmed that Moseley fatally shot Brindra Giri, a 41-year-old woman from Baltimore County; Sunday Aguda, a 45-year-old man from Baltimore County; and Hayleen Reyes, 41-year-old woman from Baltimore City.

Wilfredo Villegas, a 45-year-old man from Montgomery County, Hassan Mitchell, a 19-year-old man from Harford County, and Acharya Purna, a 45-year-old man from New York, outside of Brooklyn were shot but survived, police said.

Police have not identified a motive.
