ABERDEEN, Md. (WJZ) — Authorities have identified the three people killed and three others injured when Snochia Moseley opened fire at a Rite Aid distribution center in Harford County, just south of Aberdeen.
Sunday Aguda, a 45-year-old man from Baltimore County, Brindra Giri a 41-year-old woman from Baltimore County, and Hayleen Reyes, a 21-year-old woman from Baltimore City, were the three killed in the shooting.
Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler said Aguda was shot outside, and the two female victims were shot inside the business.
Giri’s brother, Suman Puri, was unable to hold back tears as he talked about his sister.
“First few minutes I thought it was a nightmare, it really didn’t happen, but it did happen,” Puri said.
Puri said his sister had moved to the U.S. from Nepal five months ago.
He said she had only recently started work at the Rite-Aid Distribution Center where she and several of her co-workers were gunned down Thursday morning.
“My mom is devastated. I don’t know how long it will take for her to accept this fact that she’s not there anymore. She’s been crying all night all day,” Puri said.
Giri is survived by her two kids, an 11-year-old, a 16-year-old and her husband.
Her brother said she took the job at the center despite family objections, taking the job in an effort to become a part of society and provide for her children.
“She was really nice, she would not point the finger at anyone, she would not blame anyone, like if she knows, she was really nice,” Puri said.
Puri said his sister never mentioned Moseley.
Hassan Mitchell a 19-year-old man from Harford County, Wilfredo Villegas, a 45-year-old man from Montgomery County, and Purna Acharya, a 45-year-old man from New York, were the three surviving victims who were shot by Moseley.
A community vigil is set for Friday night at the Cranberry United Methodist Church. Click here if you would like to donate to help the victims of this shooting.

“There’s no way to make sense of the senseless. We’re never going to make sense of it,” said Gahler.
