Rite Aid says it is “deeply saddened” by a shooting incident at its distribution center in Harford County, Maryland, where a 26-year-old temporary employee reportedly killed three people before taking her own life Thursday.
“We are continuing to work closely with authorities as they conduct their investigation,” Rite Aid spokesman Pete Strella said in a statement. “The facility has been closed and we are assessing when it will be reopened.”
“Grief counselors will be made available to our associates and will remain available as long as they are needed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those involved in this tragic incident, as well as their loved ones.”
