A gunman killed at least eight people and injured several others in a shooting rampage at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis before turning the gun on himself, officials said early Friday.

The unidentified attacker opened fire about 11 p.m. at the company’s operations center near the Indianapolis International Airport. It is unknown if the shooter was a FedEx employee or what his motive was.

Police spokeswoman Genae Cook said authorities responded to a report that shots had been fired and “arrived to an active shooter incident.”

“Preliminary information is that the alleged shooter has taken his own life here at the scene,” she said, adding that there was no longer any threat to the public.

Four people were transported to hospitals, one in critical condition with gunshot injuries, and three others with various other injuries, she said.
