Police spokesperson says multiple people shot but did not give a specific number.
Multiple people have been shot at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis and the suspected gunman has killed himself, police said.
Indianapolis police spokesperson Genae Cook told reporters early on Friday that when police arrived at the scene late on Thursday, officers observed an active shooting at the facility – a FedEx site on Mirabel Road, Indianapolis.
“We have multiple people with injuries consistent with gunshot wounds,” Cook said, adding that there were others who have been transported to various hospitals throughout the area.
She added that the gunman has died.
The facility is located close to the international airport.
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 WISH-TV that he saw a man with a gun after hearing several gunshots.
“I saw a man with a submachine gun of some sort, an automatic rifle, and he was firing in the open,” Jeremiah Miller said.
The incident comes after at least four people, including a child, were shot dead and one person injured following an exchange of fire at an office building in California, earlier this month.
