Eight people have been shot and killed at a FedEx facility in Indiana, US police say.
- Multiple people have injuries and the gunman has died, according to authorities
- When police arrived, officers reportedly observed “an active shooting scene at the facility”
- A witness said he saw a man with an automatic rifle “firing in the open”
Multiple people have injuries and the gunman has died, according to authorities.
When police arrived, officers reportedly observed “an active shooting scene at the facility”, according to Indianapolis police spokesperson Genae Cook.
Ms Cook confirmed multiple people were shot but did not give a specific number.
She added that the gunman had died and the public is not believed to be in immediate danger.
FedEx released a statement saying it was cooperating with authorities and working to get more information.
“We are aware of the tragic shooting at our FedEx ground facility near the Indianapolis airport,” the company said.
“Safety is our top priority, and our thoughts are with all those who are affected.”
Live video from news outlets at the scene showed crime scene tape in the parking lot outside the facility.
A witness who said he works at the facility told US media he saw a man with a gun after hearing several gunshots.
Another man who told media he was a witness said his niece was sitting in her car in the driver’s seat when the gunfire erupted, and she was wounded.
“She got shot on her left arm,” Parminder Singh said.
“She’s fine, she’s in the hospital now.”
He said his niece did not know the shooter.
Family members of workers reportedly gathered at a local hotel to await word on loved ones.
Some said employees were not allowed to have their phones with them while working shifts at the facility, making it difficult to contact them.
More to come.
