Troi Coley, a friend of Moseley’s since high school who had stayed in frequent contact with her in Facebook Messenger, said Moseley sometimes felt as if the world was against her but was not an angry person in spite of her alienation.

Coley said she was shocked to learn that Moseley had been named as the person who carried out the shooting.

“She wasn’t a monster, wasn’t an angry person,” Coley said. “I just believe this was emotional distress. If she did this, it was her last straw.”

Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler said Moseley was a temporary worker at the warehouse and was scheduled to work that morning.

According to the killer’s social media she identified as a transgender male.

“I just started talking about [being transgender],” Moseley wrote on the Internet, the paper said. “My sister is totally supportive, my brothers already had an idea, my mom I haven’t gotten around to admitting it to yet. but she’s heard about it somehow.”

The shooter had no criminal record and legally bought the handgun she used for the murders.

However, police report that Moseley had recently had several run-ins with authorities over her automobile:

In six days at the end of August and the beginning of September, Moseley was stopped by Baltimore County police three times in a corner of White Marsh between the Baltimore Beltway and Interstate 95, according to online court records.

Moseley, driving a 2005 Ford, was issued tickets for, among other things, not having current registration plates; having a suspended registration; failing to update her address with the MVA; and not having insurance.

On Sept. 14, the courts received a request to take the cases to trial, according to the online records.

In April, the Baltimore County Office of Budget and Finance sued Moseley over $117. It was not clear from online records what the case was about.

Moseley usually dressed as a male as images from her social media reveal:

Police have no motive for the attack.
