On Sunday morning, at approximately 2:15 a.m., Karlief Moye, allegedly went on a rampage and killed three of his coworkers at the ‘Blue Sunday Bar and Grill’ in the Hilltop North Shopping Center of Bowie, Maryland, along Race Track Road. Moye later attempted to kill himself and is currently hospitalized. The victims of the triple homicide are 46-year-old Sherwood Morgan of Lake Arbor Way in Mitchellville, 27-year-old Jin Chen of Dove Circle in Laurel and 28-year-old Xue Zou of Doves Fly Way in Laurel.
What is truly perplexing-still with the smoking gun in his hand-those familiar with Moye are saying, “he would never do anything like this,” well he did. Why is it necessary to excuse violent behavior? Just because you know a person and you saw a certain side to them, it does not equate to their innocence or determine that they are incapable of violent acts. Violence occurs. Anger does not have a face or a type. Three people have been killed. Why is there a need to pacify violent behavior by saying “he’s a nice guy?” Why is the first thought not: “Three people lost their lives and the murderer should be held accountable?”
How do you respond if a violent workplace incident occurs? Do you know the steps to protect yourself? This incident should have us all alarmed. Realistically a tragedy like this can happen anywhere. You just never know who will snap at any given time. Be careful out there and stay vigilant.
These situations are tragic. May all of the victims Rest In Peace. Praying for the families, friends and coworkers.
