Police: 8 dead in shooting at FedEx facility in Indianapolis


INDIANAPOLIS (AP/WOWO): Eight people were shot and killed in a late-night shooting at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis, and the shooter has also killed himself.

Multiple other people were injured Thursday night when gunfire erupted at the facility near the Indianapolis International Airport, IMPD spokesperson Genae Cook said.

At least four were hospitalized, including one person with critical injures. Another two people were treated and released at the scene, Cook said.

The shooter wasn’t immediately identified, and Cook said investigators were still in the process of conducting interviews and gathering information.

The Gun Violence Archive says 147 mass shootings have occurred so far in 2021. Their definition of “mass shooting” is a minimum of four gunshot victims.

“Maureen and I just learned of the tragedy in Indianapolis when we woke up,” said Indiana U.S. Senator Mike Braun. “Our hearts are mourning for the individuals who’ve senselessly lost their lives, all of their loved ones, and their co-workers at FedEx who will be dealing with this tragedy for a long time to come. Thank you to the members of law enforcement who put their lives on the line and responded heroically to this situation.”
