‘Mass casualty incident’: Multiple people reported wounded in shooting at FedEx facility in Indianapolis

A massive police response was underway on Mirabel Road, southwest of Indianapolis, on Thursday night. One man told local media his niece was shot in the arm at a gas station that is just outside the warehouse complex that includes a FedEx Ground warehouse.

Indianapolis police said in a statement that preliminary information suggested the shooter took his own life, adding that there was no longer an active threat to the community.

Earlier, public information officer William Young told reporters that the shooting was a “mass casualty” incident, but did not provide more details on the situation. 

“I saw one body on the floor,” one witness – apparently a FedEx employee who was on a break – told local media. 

Another police statement said officers have located “multiple victims.” 

The FedEx facility employs more than 4,500 people and is the second-largest hub in the company’s global network, according to the Indianapolis Star.
