Transcript for At least 8 dead, several wounded in Indianapolis FedEx shooting
We come on the air this morning with the sad and enraging news that it has happened again. Another mass shooting in America. This is overnight, George. A gunman opened fire at a FedEx ground facility in Indianapolis. At least eight people killed. Multiple others rushed to the hospital with injuries. We know that president Biden is now set to be briefed on this this morning on the rampage. Chief of staff already in touch with the mayor there. Pierre Thomas starts us off. Good morning, Pierre. Reporter: George, good morning. Overnight another massacre leaving Indianapolis in mourning. The worst case scenario playing out again, a lone gunman likely with an assault rifle opening fire in a public place. Heard ten shots. Reporter: Overnight Indianapolis becoming the scene of the nation's latest mass shooting. Shooter, white male wearing a hat, has a machine gun. Reporter: Shortly after 11:00 P.M. Police responding to reports of shots fired at the FedEx ground facility near the airport. I have a female in the control room who advised the subject is still shooting. Reporter: Police arriving moments later finding multiple victims inside and outside the shipping facility where roughly 100 workers were on duty. We heard three more shots and then my buddy Levi saw someone running out of the building and then more shots went off. Reporter: According to authorities multiple people rushed to local hospitals. Eight killed in the shooter's rampage and police say he died by suicide. The shooter has taken his own we don't kneel that there is an active threat to the community at this time. Reporter: Worried families waiting at a holiday inn through the night for word on their missing loved ones. I hope to god he is not injured and hope a whole lot of other people aren't injured either but we don't know. Reporter: FedEx saying our thoughts are with those who are affected. We are working to gather more information and cooperating with authorities. The police department, the officers responded. They came in. They went in and they did their job and a lot of them are trying to face this because this is a sight that no one should ever have to see. This is a tragedy, but yet through it all we will come through it. Reporter: Police have not identified the gunman so far no indication of motive as we're all asking why. Right, Pierre, but it's something of a sick commentary on the state of the country. The pandemic recedes and shootings go up. Reporter: Where four or more people are killed or wound have had doubled from 2018 to 2020, George. While the numbers spiking in general last year we saw a lull for those happening in public places because the pandemic had shut us down. Now with so much of the nation opening up again, we're seeing more and more gunmen going to public places with deadly intentions. Pierre Thomas, thanks very much.
