At 8:53 a.m., Moseley reentered the warehouse and, at 9:05 a.m., was seen exiting yet again, and she began shooting.

The first victim was shot outside, and she reentered the building again at 9:07 a.m. and continued shooting. There were 65 people working inside the warehouse.

After reentering the building, she continued shooting, striking the five additional victims before shooting herself in the head. Law enforcement officers were on scene within five minutes of initial dispatch. The suspect had already shot herself by the time police arrived.

Moseley had a last known address of Baltimore County and died at a local hospital. During the investigation, police determined that she was suffering from a mental illness and, over the last two weeks, had become increasingly agitated.

Court records list Moseley’s most recent address as being the 8100-block of Ridgetown Drive in Nottingham.

“Overnight the detectives interviewed family members and friends and executed a search warrant at the White Marsh residence of the shooter looking for some motive or some cause,” said Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler. “While no evidence directly related to the shooting was recovered, evidence that the shooter was suffering with a mental illness was identified.”

Governor Hogan, County Executive Mohler react to Aberdeen shooting

Crime SceneGovernor Larry Hogan and Baltimore County Executive Don Mohler have weighed in on Thursday’s shooting in the Aberdeen area.

Four people were killed and seven people injured in the shooting, which occurred at a Rite Aid distribution center in the 1500-block of Perryman Road at just after 9 a.m.

According to her social media profile, the suspect, Snochia Moseley, 26, attended Overlea High School and may have lived in Parkville at one time.  Moseley died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

“We are wholeheartedly grateful to the first responders who were at the scene in five minutes, and all medical and law enforcement personnel who are helping in the aftermath of this tragic shooting.”

County Executive Don Mohler has also issued a statement:

“Once again, a tragic act of gun violence has hit close to home as mass shootings have become the norm. Our hearts and prayers go out to the victims of such senseless violence, and to their families. But these words have begun to ring hollow as we have had 25 mass shootings in September and more than 150 this year. Enough is enough.

“If as leaders and communities, we don’t demand action, and demand it now, we should be embarrassed. This country is too great, its people too good, to remain in our bunkers stuck with talking points from the right or the left. There is not a “one size fits all” solution to the gun violence epidemic. It is about mental health. And although some may not like it, it is about easy access to guns. Complex issues rarely present binary choices. They are not “either/or.” They are difficult.

“‘Now is not the time’ is a weak excuse to do nothing. Doing nothing at a time when gun violence is terrorizing our communities is nonsense, plain and simple. Now, more than ever, is the time to act.

“We’ve never backed down from challenges in our nation, and we can’t back down now. If we pass this cancer onto the next generation, the blood will be on our hands.”
