4 dead, including suspect, in Maryland warehouse shooting

A woman opened fire with a handgun Thursday at a Rite Aid drugstore chain distribution center in Maryland, killing three people and wounding three others.

The suspect then fatally shot herself, Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler said.

Authorities identified the suspect only as a 26-year-old whose last known address was in Baltimore County.

She was a temporary employee at the facility, which has nearly 1,000 employees and packages pharmaceuticals and other products sent to more than 2,500 stores.

Investigators could not immediately determine a motive for the rampage, but it was believed to have been related to a workplace grievance. The gunfire started outside the warehouse then moved inside.

The incident was among the rare mass shootings attributed to a woman. Most are committed by men.
