Law enforcement near Aberdeen, Maryland identified the victims of a workplace shooting last week at a Rite Aid warehouse.

Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey R. Gahler confirmed three people died and three more sustained injuries when 26-year-old Snochia Moseley opened fire shortly after 9 a.m. Thursday.

Sunday Aguda, a 45-year-old male from Baltimore County; Brindra Giri, a 41-year-old female from Baltimore County and Hayleen Reyes, a 21-year-old female from Baltimore City died in the attack. Hassan Mitchell, a 19-year-old male from Harford County; Wilfredo Villegas, 45-year-old male from Montgomery County; and Purna Acharya, 45-year-old male from New York, were wounded, police confirmed.

Police still don’t know why Moseley, a temporary employee at the distribution center, left work less than an hour after arriving for her 6:30 a.m. shift to retrieve a 9mm handgun from her home in Baltimore County. She re-entered the front gate at 8:35 a.m. and began firing on employees 30 minutes later, striking six before turning the gun on herself, according to police.

Susan Henderson, a Rite Aid spokeswoman, told the Associated Press the building where the shooting occurred served as a support facility for a nearby larger building. The company said on social media the incident left them “deeply saddened.”

Investigators said Moseley lived with mental illness and became “increasingly agitated” over the last two weeks.

“We learned again yesterday, that no community is immune from this type of heinous violence,” Gahler said in a press conference Friday. “Harford County overall is a very safe place to live and work, citizens should feel confident their law enforcement professionals are well trained and prepared to maintain the safety of our community members.”
