Multiple people shot, injured at Indianapolis FedEx facility

Multiple people were shot at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis late Thursday, and the suspected shooter killed himself, a police official said.

Indianapolis police spokeswoman Officer Genae Cook said multiple people had injuries consistent with gunshot wounds, but she did not say whether anyone died.

Preliminary information is that the shooter killed himself, she said. “We don’t feel that there is an active threat to the community at this time,” she said.

Officers responded to reports of shots fired at the FedEx center near the city’s airport just after 11 p.m., Cook said.

“We are aware of the tragic shooting at our FedEx Ground facility near the Indianapolis airport,” FedEx said in a statement.

“Safety is our top priority, and our thoughts are with all those who are affected. We are working to gather more information and are cooperating with investigating authorities,” the company said.

There have been several mass shootings in the U.S. in recent weeks, including an April 8 shooting at a cabinet company facility in Bryan, Texas, that left one person dead and five others wounded.
