According to USA Today
Police on Friday were seeking a motive and working to identify the gunman and eight victims in a mass shooting at a FedEx facility late Thursday.
Police responded to the FedEx Ground facility on the city’s southwest side just after 11 p.m. Thursday for a report of shots fired at a business. Police encountered “a very chaotic and active crime scene” after a gunman fired at random both inside and outside the facility, Indianapolis Deputy Police Chief Craig McCartt said at a news conference Friday.
McCartt said the suspect appeared to have died by suicide moments before police arrived. While police have an idea of who the gunman was and are searching his house, McCartt said police were not able to formally identify him yet.
Four people died outside and four died inside, plus the shooter, McCartt said. Five other people were injured in the incident, four with gunshot wounds and one with another injury, McCartt said.
The coroner’s office has not been able to get onto the scene to identify the victims and inform family members until police finish collecting evidence at the scene, said Alfarena McGinty, chief deputy coroner for Marion County.
