Multiple people have been killed at a Maryland Rite Aid distribution center when a female shooter opened fire Thursday.
The lone shooter, who has not been identified, is currently in critical condition, but it’s not clear how she was injured, reports said.
At least three people are dead and two more wounded during the shooting spree just after 9 a.m. The suspect was armed with a single gun at the building in Harford County.
Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler said during a news conference Thursday that no members of law enforcement fired shots.
“What I understand is the location is secure,” said Rite Aid spokeswoman Susan Henderson said after the shooting. “The distribution center is where products are received and processed for delivery. This is part of a large facility that is a distribution center. The shooting happened adjacent to the primary building.”
The FBI Baltimore office and special agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are assisting in the investigation.
Other news outlets are saying the woman is a disgruntled employee. And according to CNN, the suspect shot herself in the head, but didn’t die… so she shot herself in the head AGAIN (Yikes!). She’s still not dead, but is listed in critical condition.
Here’s a text exchange from the incident:
I think the Vegas massacre set a new standard for media coverage of mass shootings. Without dozens dead, no one cares. We’ve had 3 mass shootings at workplaces this week and they seem like background noise at this point. The news barely penetrates the constant static.— Matt Novak (@paleofuture) September 20, 2018
