Multiple people have been shot at a business park in Aberdeen, Maryland.

The shooter is still at large. They opened fire at business park and a church but it remains unclear where exactly the incident took place or if anyone is in custody.

The victims’ condition is also unknown. All that has been revealed by police so far is that they responded to reports of shots fired at 9.09am.

The incident happened between Spesutia Road and Perryman Road.

There are a number of businesses at the site including a Rite Aid distribution center and a Clorox warehouse.

As the shooting unfolded, terrified workers text their loved ones to tell them there was a shooter in the building.

Alexi Scharmann told local station WBLA-TV that her mother, who works in the Rite Aid building, sent her and her sibling a message to tell her she was hiding.

They read: ‘I love you both more than you will ever know. There is a shooter in the building.

‘I am hiding. I love you. Be good and take care of daddy and the pets if something should happen,’ she said.

She had to wait another hour before learning that her mother was safe and had escaped.

Roads have been closed and trains which stop nearby are also being halted.

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan said he is closely monitoring the horrific shooting.’

‘Our prayers are with all those impacted, including our first responders.

‘The State stands ready to offer any support,’ he said on Twitter.

When police first announced it on Twitter, they described it as a ‘fluid situation.’
