Sher­iff: Shooter had men­tal ill­ness but legally owned gun

Greenwich Time - - OBITUARIES / NEWS -

The woman who killed three peo­ple and wounded oth­ers be­fore shoot­ing her­self to death at a Mary­land drug­store warehouse had been di­ag­nosed with a men­tal ill­ness and used a legally pur­chased gun in the ram­page, a law en­force­ment of­fi­cial said Fri­day.

Har­ford County Sher­iff Jef­frey Gahler told news re­porters Fri­day that the sus­pect, 26-year-old Snochia Mose­ley of Bal­ti­more County, had been di­ag­nosed with a men­tal ill­ness in 2016. “That’s as far as I’ll go with it,” he said, de­clin­ing to give any more de­tails about the ill­ness.

He said Mose­ley had be­come in­creas­ingly ag­i­tated in re­cent weeks, and rel­a­tives had been con­cerned for her well-be­ing.

Gahler said she used a hand­gun that she legally pur­chased in March to fire a to­tal of 13 rounds Thurs­day morn­ing and died af­ter shoot­ing her­self in the head.

Gahler iden­ti­fied the three peo­ple Mose­ley fa­tally shot as Sun­day Aguda, a 45-year-old man from Bal­ti­more County; Hayleen Reyes, a 41-year-old woman from Bal­ti­more; and Brindra Giri, a 41-year-old woman from Bal­ti­more County.
