A friend of the woman who killed three people in a mass shooting in Maryland Thursday revealed that she identified as a transgender male.
Authorities identified the shooter who killed three people and wounded two others at a Rite Aid distribution center in Aberdeen as a 26-year-old woman named Snochia Moseley. While both the police and court documents identified Moseley, who worked at the distribution center, as biologically female, Troi Coley, a high school friend of the shooter, revealed that she identified as transgender in as early as 2016.

“I just started talking about [being transgender],” Moseley wrote in a Facebook message from December 2016, according to The Baltimore Sun. “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.”
