The shooter wasn't immediately identified, and investigators were in the process of conducting interviews and gathering information.

In an earlier tweet, Perrine said Interstate 70 near the facility was closed in both directions, but it was later reopened.

It is unclear how many people were shot in total.

It was at least the third mass shooting this year in Indianapolis alone.

Police spokesperson Genae Cook said on Friday multiple other people were injured, at least four were hospitalized and another two people were treated and released at the scene.

The gunman, said to have been acting alone, is reported to have killed himself. Authorities said there is no active threat now.

A FedEx spokesperson said the company was aware of the shooting at its ground facility near the airport.

The announcement came a day after Potter resigned from the Brooklyn Centre Police Department, where she had served for 26 years. Video of the scene showed a police officer with a megaphone telling demonstrators to leave the area.

"Safety is our top priority, and our thoughts are with all those who are affected", it said.

Local media cited a company spokesman as saying that FedEx is now considering reevaluating a policy that prohibits employees from having their phones with them during shifts, making it hard to contact them. Police asked anyone with family members who work at the facility that they weren't able to get in contact with to go to the Holiday Inn Express at 8555 Stansted Drive.

Live video from news outlets at the scene showed crime-scene tape in the parking lot outside the facility.

Timothy Boillat, another employee at the facility, told WISH-TV that he saw around 30 police cars arriving at the scene as he witnessed the shooting unfold.

"We have located eight people with gunshot wounds who were pronounced deceased at the scene".

Paraminder Singh, a family member of one of the victims, told a FOX59 journalist his niece was in her auto when the gunman started shooting at her vehicle. "She's fine, she's in the hospital now", Parminder Singh said.

Authorities say the shooter took his own life.
