ABERDEEN, Md. (WJZ) — 45-year-old Sunday Aguda was a husband, father, a native Nigerian and a current Baltimore County resident working Thursday inside a Rite-Aid distribution center in Harford County, where investigators say it was break time when 26-year-old Snochia Moseley started her rampage by shooting and killing Aguda outside the building.
She then moved inside, to pull the trigger 13 times, murdering two more employees, Brindra Giri a 41-year-old woman from Baltimore County, and Hayleen Reyes, a 21-year-old woman from Baltimore City.
The wife of Sunday Aguda, one of the shooting victims in the Rite-Aid warehouse shooting this past week, wrote a note to the world about her husband.
“This is a note from Aleina, the wife of Sunday Aguda who was the first victim of the Rite-Aid warehouse shooting. I want the world to know Sunday was a special person. He was a great husband and father who will be greatly missed. When we lost him, he was doing what he always did, working hard to take care of his family. My heart and prayers also goes out to the family members of the other victims. Please stay strong, have faith and know God is in control. Love, Aleina Scott.”
The woman who opened fire at a Rite Aid distribution center, killing three people, had reportedly been diagnosed with a mental illness years ago.
One of those people was 41-year-old Brindra Giri.
“I woke up this morning, I wanted to have this be a nightmare. First few minutes it was a nightmare. It really didn’t happen,” Suman Puri, her brother said.
Giri had just moved to the U.S. from Nepal. She’d only been working at the warehouse for a few weeks.
Barely longer than Mosely, who deputies said was a temporary employee.
Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler said Friday that Snochia Moseley was diagnosed with a mental illness in 2016.
Moseley reportedly used a 9mm Glock that she legally purchased in March, and fired a total of 13 rounds.
She died after shooting herself twice in the head.
Investigators still don’t have a motive for this shooting, and Gahler says they probably won’t because Moseley killed herself.
