Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb has ordered flags be lowered to half-staff in remembrance of the victims.
(Indianapolis, Ind.) - Eight people are dead after a mass shooting in Indianapolis.
Indianapolis Metropolitan Police responded to 8951 Mirabel Road late Thursday on a report of shots fired inside the FedEx Ground-Plainfield Operation Center.
Once on the scene, officers located multiple victims with injuries consistent with gunshot wounds. Eight were pronounced dead at the scene, five victims were transported to local hospitals for treatment, and two victims were treated at the scene and released.
IMPD say the alleged shooter took his own life at the scene.
Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb released the following statement:
“This is another heartbreaking day and I’m shaken by the mass shooting at the FedEx Ground facility in Indianapolis. Indiana State Police are working with local responders and we will continue to offer any and all resources needed to assist during this tragedy. In times like this, words like justice and sorrow fall short in response for those senselessly taken. Our thoughts are with the families, friends, coworkers and all those affected by this terrible situation."
The governor is ordering flags be lowered to half-staff from now until sunset on Tuesday, April 20 in remembrance of those we lost and those injured.
