FedEx shooting

Our hearts go out to the families and loved ones of those killed or wounded in this senseless shooting, and we empathize with the pain and grief that so many Hoosiers and people around the nation are feeling as they wake up this morning to this unspeakable tragedy.

Police said multiple people had been shot but did not confirm the number or their status.

Liberals also chafed at one right wing commentators' description of the boy who was shot dead by police a Chicago as a 13-year old man while defending Kyle Rittenhouse, a 17-year old white vigilante accused killing two people with a AR-15 rifle.

Mass shooting at Indianapolis FedEx facility leaves eight dead. He says he will stay with the families until they get more information.

The gunman, thought to have been acting alone, is reported to have killed himself. "I immediately ducked down and got scared and my friend's mother, she came in and told us to get inside the vehicle".

The FBI is helping Indianapolis Metro Police Department "on the search of the suspect's home", FBI Special Agent in Charge of the Indianapolis field office Paul Keenan said at a Friday morning news conference. "The safety of our team members is our top priority, and we are fully cooperating with investigating authorities", the statement said.

Some said employees were not allowed to have their phones with them while working shifts at the facility, making it hard to contact them.

The Gun Violence Archive puts the number of gun violence deaths from all causes at 12,395 so far this year in the U.S., of which 147 were in mass shootings.

Such no-body prosecutions, Dow said, are "incredibly important for the victim's family because they want closure". Authorities have previously served search warrants at the homes of multiple members of the Flores family.

Interstate-70 near the airport was temporarily closed Thursday night in both directions as police responded to the scene of the shooting. Less than a week later, 10 people were killed when a gunman opened fire at a grocery store in Boulder, Colo.

President Joe Biden this month announced six executive measures he said would help stem the gun violence crisis.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she was "horrified and heartbroken" by the shooting and called for congressional action on gun control.

A witness said that he was working inside the building when he heard several gunshots in rapid succession.

"Somebody went behind their vehicle to the trunk and then got another gun", he said, adding: "Then I saw one body on the floor".

Another witness told WTTV that his niece was sitting in her auto in the driver's seat when the gunfire erupted, and she was wounded.

"She got shot on her left arm", Parminder Singh said.

Gov. Eric Holcomb ordered flags to be flown at half-staff until April 20, and he and others decried the shooting, with some noting how frequent such attacks are.
