    8 Killed in Indianapolis Shooting

    Indianapolis shooting: eight killed at FedEx facility


    Multiple other people injured before suspected gunman killed himself, say police



    At least eight people have been shot and killed at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis and the suspected gunman killed himself, police have said.

    Multiple other people were injured and went to local hospitals, a police spokesperson, Genae Cook, said at an early morning news conference on Friday.

    At least four people were admitted to hospital, including one with critical injuries. Two others were treated at the scene and released. No law enforcement officers were injured.

    “We’re still trying to ascertain the exact reason and cause for this incident,” Cook said. She asked people who could not reach family members working at FedEx to go to a nearby hotel.

    A witness, who said he worked at the facility, told WISH-TV that he saw a man with a gun after hearing several gunshots. “I saw a man with a submachine gun of some sort, an automatic rifle, and he was firing in the open,” Jeremiah Miller said.

    Another man told WTTV that his niece was sitting in the driver’s seat of her car when the gunfire erupted, and she was wounded. “She got shot on her left arm,” said Parminder Singh. “She’s fine, she’s in the hospital now.” He said his niece did not know the shooter.

    FedEx said: “We are aware of the tragic shooting at our FedEx Ground facility near the Indianapolis airport. Safety is our top priority, and our thoughts are with all those who are affected. We are working to gather more information and are cooperating with investigating authorities.”

    The shooting was the latest in a string of mass killings across the US in recent months. Eight people were fatally shot at massage businesses across metro Atlanta, and 10 died in gunfire at a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado, last month.

    This was at least the third mass shooting this year in Indianapolis. Five people including a pregnant woman were shot and killed in January, and a man was accused of killing three adults and a child before abducting his daughter during an argument at a home in March.

    Overnight, family members gathered at a hotel to await news on loved ones. Some said employees at the FedEx facility were not allowed to keep their phones with them while working, making it difficult to contact them, WTHR TV reported.

    Police were expected to give another update, but the exact time of a news conference was not immediately available.

    Well, I know what you mean.

    I actually first posted it in the soapbox, but that didn't seem right.

    Guns don't kill people. People with guns do.

    I disagree, Dangerous people with guns do.
    so all we need to do is remove dangerous people with guns from the equation with reasonable regulation.

    This poster child for abortion, probably thought the Sikhs were Muslims. Not that it would had made it any better if they were but .
    It is not the first time this has happened where some idiot thought a Sikh was a Muslim. The sadness of it all is that the Sikh religion is probably the most inclusive religion in the world.
    The situation in the US is sad very sad.

    ^Fun fact, that kid couldn't play a note on the Banjo but the adult behind him certainly could. Check the hands out.

    Turns out that they did confiscate a pump action shotgun from him after his earlier breakdown, but weren't able to stop him going and buying two AR weapons.

    They had a red flag law that should have stopped this, but it failed. Investigation is underway.
