Rare Female Shooter: 'She Wanted to Pick a Fight'

Police responded to a reported shooting incident at the Rite Aid Distribution Center in the Perryman area of Aberdeen, Maryland, on Thursday, September 20.

Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler told news reporters Friday that the suspect, 26-year-old Snochia Moseley of Baltimore County, had been diagnosed with a mental illness in 2016.

In a tweet, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan said his office is monitoring the situation in Aberdeen and that the state stands ready to offer any support.

Mass shootings are common in the United States but the vast majority involve men and the Aberdeen incident is a rare mass shooting carried out by a woman.

"We do not at this time have a motive for this senseless crime", Gahler said. Initial reports say that five people have been wounded. Moseley, a temporary employee from Baltimore, shot herself in the head after the shooting.

The Rite Aid center, situated among warehouses in an industrial park, has almost 1,000 employees, company spokesman Pete Strella said.

CNN reported the suspect tried to take her own life.

"After re-entering the building, she continued shooting, striking the five additional victims", Harford Sherriff Jeff Gahler said in a press conference.

Sensors onboard include accelerometer, gyroscope, proximity sensor, RGB light sensor, and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. The dimensions of this model measure 41.9×45.7×12.7mm and it weighs 49 grams while supporting 22mm interchangeable straps.

Authorities have identified the three people killed and three others injured when Moseley opened fire.

She killed three people and left three others wounded before turning the gun on herself, authorities said.

The three injured people are expected to survive.

And in 2016, two sheriff deputies were shot and killed at a Panera restaurant in Harford County. Police would not confirm reports that the shooter was a woman, but revealed that the suspect had not been shot by police.

FBI Baltimore said it was responding to the scene, and a spokesperson told Fox News one of the bureau's crisis specialist teams was en route.

The attack comes nearly three months after an attacker killed five people in a newspaper office in Annapolis, Maryland. "It went to voicemail because they keep their phones in lockers", said Kelly Rodriguez, 40.

"Then, around 2 p.m., four people including a police officer were shot after a man opened fire outside a judge's office in a municipal building in Masontown, Penn".
