Eyewitness describes scene at Indianapolis shooting

Five others with injuries "consistent with gunshot wounds" were transported to local hospitals for treatment and two victims were treated at the scene, the statement said.

America's sickening chronicle of gun violence and police brutality turned another bloody page on Friday with yet another mass shooting, this time at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis where a lone shooter massacred eight people before killing himself. The investigators are searching a home in Indianapolis associated with Hole and have seized evidence, including desktop computers and other electronic media, the officials said.

The facility is located close to the global airport.

Police said multiple people had been shot but did not confirm the number or their status. "I immediately ducked down and got scared", he said. "My god. How many more days will we go to bed shook by the tragedy of another child killed by police, and wake up to news of lives lost in another mass shooting, before we do what needs to be done in this country to stop these things??" tweeted Maya Harris, vice-president Kamala Harris' sister and a prominent civil rights lawyer in her own right.

In March, eight people were fatally shot at massage businesses across Atlanta, and 10 were killed in a shooting at a supermarket in Boulder, Colo.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Public Information Officer Genae Cook told reporters at around 1 a.m. Friday that officers responded to the warehouse shortly after 11 p.m. following reports of gun shots.

McCartt said four people were killed outside the building and another four inside.

Police hold press conference as multiple shot in Indianapolis

"We are aware of the tragic shooting at our ground facility near the Indianapolis airport", the company said in a statement. "The safety of our team members is our top priority, and we are fully cooperating with investigating authorities".

Some said employees aren't allowed to have their phones with them while working shifts at the facility, making it hard to contact them, WTHR-TV reported. Let us look out for one another, as we have done all throughout this past challenging year, and as we send our most heartfelt sympathies to all who have been affected by this bad act of violence.

The White House says that President Joe Biden has been briefed on the shooting.

"Our most heartfelt sympathies are with all those affected by this senseless act of violence". One observer noted bleakly that "this is when the GOP jump in and say we need more guns, not less.let's give everyone a gun and a box of ammunition when they turn 18, but they're much too young and inexperienced to vote".

"I saw a man with a submachine gun of some sort, an automatic rifle, and he was firing in the open".

A man told WTTV that his niece was sitting in the driver's seat of her vehicle when the gunfire erupted, and she was wounded. As officers arrived, they came upon an active shooter, she said.

"She's fine, she's in the hospital now".
