United States: a shooting bursts in the offices of FedEx in Indianapolis and makes several victims
Sylvie Claire / April 16, 2021
Several people were injured and a suspected gunman killed himself in a shooting late Thursday in Indianapolis in the central United States, police said.
Police spokeswoman Genae Cook told reporters early Friday that a shooting occurred at a FedEx letter and package shipping group center near the city's international airport and that the suspected shooter reportedly killed himself. Police said several people were injured, but did not say how many or in what condition.
Indiana State Police Public Information Officer Sgt. John Perrine asked on Twitter for relatives of the Fedex employees to gather at a local Holiday Inn.
Shootings are a recurring plague in the United States. On April 9, one person was killed and several others injured in a Texas furniture store, hours after President Joe Biden presented a plan to combat gun violence.
On March 31, four people, including a nine-year-old child, were killed near Los Angeles, a shooting that followed two other killings in March that left 18 people dead and reignited the debate over the proliferation of firearms in the country.
