Mass shooting reported at fedEX facility in Indianapolis

Multiple people have been reportedly shot and others wounded after a gunman entered a fedEX warehouse near Indianapolis International Airport, in the United States, at about 11pm, on Thursday night, April 15.

Several 911 calls, claim people heard shooting outside and inside the building, with workers hiding inside by the conveyor belt.

The Indiana metropolitan police confirmed that after the shooting, the gunman turned the gun on himself, and shot himself.

The number of fatalities are yet to be confirmed by the authorities, but eight people have died, and several others wounded.

A spokesperson said: “As officers arrived, they came in contact with an active shooter incident.”

“We have multiple people with injuries consistent with gunshot wounds.”

A worker at the scene told Wish-TV news: “I saw a man with a submachine gun of some sort, an automatic rifle, and he was firing in the open.”

A statement from FedEX reads:

“We are aware of the tragic shooting at our FedEx Ground facility near the Indianapolis airport.

“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.”

As emergency responders raced to the scene, authorities were reportedly heard declaring the incident as a “mass casualty, level 1”, which means there could be less than 10 surviving victims.

The building was evacuated following the shooting, local reports say, and pictures from the scene show a large group of employees standing outside.
