1 min read

Indianapolis police say multiple people were shot at a FedEx facility on the city’s southwest side late Thursday. The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department says officers came upon an active shooter incident when they arrived. They  reported finding numerous victims.

Some were rushed to several hospitals, reports CBS Indianapolis affiliate WTTV.

IMPD spokesperson Genae Cook told reporters early Friday that, “We have multiple people with injuries consistent with gunshot wounds.” She didn’t say how many or what condition they were in.

She said it appears the shooter took his own life, adding, “We don’t feel that there is an active threat to the community at this time.”

Police were asking anyone with family members who work at the facility who haven’t been able to contact them to go to a nearby Holiday Inn.

The facility is near the Indianapolis International airport.
