Eight people were shot at and killed and several others injured in an incident Thursday in the US city of Indianapolis, according to police.
Police spokeswoman Genae Cook told reporters officers found an “active shooter incident” at a Fedex facility near the city’s international airport, and believe the gunman died by suicide.
Sgt John Perrine, an Indiana State police public information officer told relatives of Fedex employees to gather at a local Holiday Inn.
Live video showed police tape at the scene of the incident, which follows several mass shootings in recent weeks. At the end of last month, four people, including a child, were shot dead in an office building in southern California.
On March 22, 10 people were killed in a shooting at a grocery store in Boulder, Colorado. That came less than a week after a man shot and killed eight people, including six women of Asian descent, at spas in Atlanta, Georgia.
