Eight Dead In Mass Shooting At Indiana FedEx Facility

The New York Times reports:

Eight people were killed and at least seven others were injured in a shooting at a FedEx warehouse in Indianapolis late Thursday, and the gunman was believed to have killed himself, the police said.

Officer Genae Cook of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department told reporters Friday morning that at least five other people had been hospitalized with injuries, including one in critical condition.

Officer Cook told reporters that the police arrived at the scene just after 11 p.m., responding to a report that shots had been fired. They encountered an “active shooter incident,” she said.

NBC News reports:

A witness told NBC affiliate WTHR of Indianapolis that he was working inside the building when he heard gunshots. “I see a man come out with a rifle in his hand and he starts firing and he starts yellin’ stuff that I could not understand,” Levi Miller said. “What I ended up doing was ducking down to make sure he did not see me because I thought he would see me and he would shoot me.”
