    According to preliminary reports, citing Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department spokesperson Officer Genae Cook, officers responded to a "mass casualty situation" at 8951 Mirabel Road.

    An active shooter incident was reported around 11 p.m. local time (3 a.m. on Friday GMT) in Indianapolis, Indiana, according to WRTV.  At least 8 people were killed while the perpetrator died by suicide, so there is no threat right now, police said.

    Multiple photos and videos, allegedly taken at the site of the shooting, have since been shared on social media by witnesses and journalists.

    The shooting occurred at FedEx's Indianapolis facility, which is the second-largest hub in the company's global network, employing more than 4,500 people. ​The news of the incident comes just a few days after fatal shooting attacks in Tennessee, Georgia, Minnesota, and Washington state.
