NBC’s Pete Williams reported earlier in the day that three were dead and two were injured in a Maryland shooting at a Rite Aid warehouse. The shooter is reportedly down and has been identified as a woman. WBAL investigative reporter Jayne Miller said that the suspect was taken to a hospital. Police said that she was apprehended in “critical condition.”
In light of the police Twitter information, the suspect is dead. They said she fatally shot herself.
1,000 employees are reportedly employed at the facility, which is located north of Baltimore.
Rite Aid spokeswoman Susan Henderson told CNN that 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,” Henderson said.
The shooting, described as “horrific” by Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R), occurred at a Rite Aid distribution center known as the “Liberty Support Facility.” According to police, the shooting incident was no longer considered active by 11:30 a.m.
Hogan also said authorities were “closely monitoring” the situation.
Police said they did not fire any shots and that a single handgun was used in the workplace shooting.
