Dead in Shooting at Indianapolis FedEx Facility”

"Safety is our top priority, and our thoughts are with all those who are affected", the statement said.

Flights from the nearby worldwide airport, where the FedEx Express cargo airline has a hub, are not affected.

"We don't feel there is an active threat to the community at this time", Cook told reporters.

Police said 10 people suffered critical injuries, more than 20 people suffered serious injuries, and more than 30 people were wounded but still able to walk.

It was the latest in a recent string of mass shootings across the US.

One man who said he works at the plant told local broadcaster WISH-TV he saw the gunman start shooting.

A reporter with WRTV, an Indianapolis station, posted an interview on Twitter with a man who said he had been at the facility when the shooting broke out and later saw a body on the floor.

At the end of March, a gunman killed four people, including a 9-year-old boy, at a real estate office in Southern California.

As per data, almost 40,000 people in the United States die each year from the violence induced by guns.

Fedex released a statement early on Friday saying it was cooperating with authorities and working to get more information.

Another man told WTTV that his niece was sitting in the driver's seat of her auto when the gunfire erupted, and she was wounded.

Family members have gathered at a local hotel to wait for word on their loved ones.

Singh said she called him and told him there had been shots fired in the FedEx building.

Some said employees were not allowed to have their phones with them while working shifts at the facility, making it hard to contact them. "She's fine, she's in the hospital now".

Cook said that Indianapolis Metropolitan Police officers responded to the warehouse shortly after 11 p.m. following reports of gun shots.
