By Erin Mendell
A gunman shot people at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis before
killing himself, the city's police said.
Multiple people were injured and taken to hospitals Thursday
night, an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department spokeswoman
said at a news conference, without providing the number of wounded
or their conditions.
The police responded just after 11 p.m. local time to reports of
shots being fired at the facility near Indianapolis's airport and
encountered the shootings still in progress, the spokeswoman
The FedEx Corp. facility employs more than 4,500 people and is
the second-largest hub for the company globally, according to the
Indianapolis Star newspaper. The police directed people who
couldn't reach family members who work at the facility to gather at
a hotel, rather than go to the scene of the shooting.
