Indianapolis Shooting Leaves at Least Eight Dead at FedEx Facility

A gunman killed eight people and wounded others at a FedEx Corp. facility in Indianapolis before killing himself, the city’s police said.

The police responded just after 11 p.m. local time on Thursday to reports of shots being fired at the facility near Indianapolis’s airport and encountered the shootings still in progress, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department spokeswoman Genae Cook said at a news conference.

Ms. Cook said at least four people were taken to hospitals with one in critical condition.

In a statement, FedEx said “we are deeply shocked and saddened by the loss of our team members following the tragic shooting at our FedEx Ground facility in Indianapolis.”

“Our most heartfelt sympathies are with all those affected by this senseless act of violence,” the company said. “The safety of our team members is our top priority, and we are fully cooperating with investigating authorities.”
