Authorities say a 19-year-old gunman opened fire at a FedEx company in Indianapolis on Thursday night, killing eight people and then dying from self-inflicted gunshot wounds. The police identified the suspect as a former FedEx employee, Brandon Scott Hole.
The FBI was looking for clues in his home on Friday, but there was still no motive. Officials said that last year, law enforcement seized a gun from Hole after his mother said he might try to get himself killed by the police.
FedEx said the eight victims were all employees of the company. Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Deputy Commissioner Craig McCartt (Craig McCartt) said that the last time Hall was employed by the company was in 2020.
McCarter said the gunman used a rifle in a rampage, adding that he did not know whether the gunman had obtained it illegally.
Witnesses told investigators that the gunmen started the robbery shortly after arriving at the facility near the Indianapolis Airport, McCarter said.
McCarter said: “He got out of the car and soon started shooting casually outside the facility.”
