A bloodbath at an Indianapolis FedEx facility has claimed the lives of eight people including workers and injuring many others late on Thursday.
The mass shooting occurred at around 11 p.m. during a FedEx night shift change. The hooded shooter had started firing at people in the parking lot of the Warehouse before entering inside, carrying a rifle.
“I saw a man with a sub-machine gun of some sort, an automatic rifle, and he was firing in the open,” a witness said. “I immediately ducked down and got scared.”
FedEx worker Levi Miller recalled hearing gunshots while about to begin working.
“My friend at the time witnesses a man who was not part of the incident but also pulled out a gun from his truck to try and engage the shooter and he died because of it.”
“I see a man, a hooded figure…the man did have an AR in his hand and started shouting, and then he started firing at random directions.”
“I saw a dead body right behind a vehicle,” he added. “It started off in the parking lot and went into the building and went back into the parking lot.”
Miller said that the suspect was a “well-known worker” at the Plainfield plant. Authorities did not identify him yet but said that he took his own life shortly afterward.
“This is going to go long into the morning,” A police spokesperson told reporters. “We’re still trying to ascertain the exact reason and cause for this incident.”
