3 People Killed In “Active Shooter Situation” At Maryland Rite Aid Distribution Center

An anonymous police official confirmed to the Associated Press that 3 people have been killed in a Thursday shooting at a business park in Aberdeen, Maryland in what’s still being described as an “active shooter” situation.

The shooting took place on the campus of a Rite Aid distribution center in Aberdeen, Maryland, a spkeswoman said.

Spokeswoman Susan Henderson told The Associated Press on Thursday morning that the shooting happened at a support facility adjacent to a larger building.


Henderson says authorities are at the scene and the company is cooperating with the investigation.

Harford County sheriff’s office said the situation is “still fluid,” and that police are using K-9 teams to locate the shooter. The number of victims is not yet known. Maryland Gov. Hogan said his office is monitoring the “horrific shooting”.




The business park’s tenants are Rite Aid, Zenith Freight Lines, TruAire, the Clorox Company and Maines Paper & Food Service.



Church Creek Elementary School went into a modified lockdown.

A meeting is scheduled for 11:45 am.

A church and a business park are near the area where the shooting was reported. It’s not clear where the shooting took place.
Deputies were dispatched to the area – located roughly 30 miles from Baltimore – shortly after 9 am ET on Monday.

Baltimore ATF and FBI are also responding and assisting in the investigation.

Police are asking people to avoid the area.

As RT points out, Harford County was the scene of a mass shooting in October 2017, when 37-year-old Radee Labeeb Prince shot and killed three of his co-workers and injured two more at a granite fabricator in the town of Edgewood. He was eventually captured after an hours long manhunt.
