Reports of Mass Shooting inside a FedEx facility near the Indianapolis, Indiana international airport have led police to close off a stretch of I-70 highway.

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.

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.

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.

FedEx Mass Shooting

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,” a witness – apparently a FedEx employee who was on a break – told local media. 

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

Family members of FedEx workers have started arriving at the Holiday Inn and told 13News getting in touch with FedEx workers has been difficult since there is a policy against workers carrying phones while working.
