Officers were at the scene in about 5 minutes after receiving the call and did not fire any shots during the response, according to officials. The sheriff's office said Moseley, who acted alone, used one handgun and several magazines of ammunition.

Investigators said Moseley was a temporary worker who reported to work at her normal time of 9 a.m. Moseley opened fire with the handgun on people outside the facility before heading inside and opening fire on people inside the building, according to officials.

At this time, detectives have not established a motive. 

A family reunification center has been established at the Level Volunteer Fire House, 3633 Level Village Rd. in Havre de Grace, Maryland, according to police.

A Rite Aid spokesperson told FOX 5 that the shooting happened at their Liberty Support Facility. She described it as a support facility adjacent to a larger building.

The Baltimore bureaus of the ATF and FBI confirmed they have agents aiding local authorities in their investigation of the shooting.

"The First Lady and I are grieving for the loss of life in today's shooting in Harford County and praying that those who were injured fully recover. I remain in close contact with Harford County officials and state and local law enforcement as they continue to investigate," Gov. Larry Hogan tweeted. "We are wholeheartedly grateful to the first responders who were at the scene in five minutes, and all medical and law enforcement personnel who are helping in the aftermath of this tragic shooting."

Anyone with information that could aid detectives in their investigation was urged to call police at (410) 838-5800.

The attack comes nearly three months after a man armed with a shotgun attacked the Capital Gazette newspaper office in Annapolis, killing five people.
