There is no ongoing threat to the community, Cook said.
“We are deeply shocked and saddened by the loss of our team members following the tragic shooting at our FedEx Ground facility in Indianapolis,” a statement from FedEx read. “Our most heartfelt sympathies are with all those affected by this senseless act of violence. The safety of our team members is our top priority, and we are fully cooperating with investigating authorities.”
Cook is asking for all information about this shooting to come from the IMPD Public Affairs Office.
Anyone who was at the scene but left is asked to call Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana 317-262-TIPS or contact homicide detectives at 317-327-3475.
Those who are scheduled to work at the facility later in the day should contact their supervisors. The facility will be closed for several hours while detectives, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, investigate at the scene.
“We were asked by IMPD to assist in the investigation and we will be looking for any federal nexus,” an FBI spokesperson for the FBI told WRTV.
