Fedex Mass Shooting Claims 8 Lives

[(CNN)Police arrived "to a very chaotic scene, with victims and witnesses running everywhere" at a FedEx Ground facility near Indianapolis' main airport late Thursday night, where a former employee shot and*killed eight people*and wounded several others, an Indianapolis police official told CNN.

Deputy Chief Craig McCartt on Friday afternoon identified the gunman as 19-year-old Brandon Hole, who was last employed by FedEx in 2020.

Hole was found dead of a gunshot wound that appeared to be self-inflicted, McCartt said.

In March 2020, Hole's mother told law enforcement that he might attempt "suicide by cop," the FBI's Indianapolis office said in a statement.

Special Agent in Charge Paul Keenan said Hole was placed on an immediate mental health temporary hold by the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department. He also said a shotgun was seized at Hole's residence

Based on items observed in the suspect's bedroom at that time, he was interviewed by the FBI in April 2020," the statement said. "No Racially Motivated Violent Extremism (RMVE) ideology was identified during the course of the assessment and no criminal violation was found. The shotgun was not returned to the suspect."

McCartt told reporters that Indianapolis police found Hole's name in two past incident reports. The deputy chief didn't have information about the first report. The details he described from a 2020 report align with the FBI statement.

Investigators are trying to determine motive and were searching what they believe is the suspected gunman's home, Keenan told reporters late Friday morning.

When asked what brought the suspected gunman to the FedEx facility Thursday around 11 p.m., McCartt said: "I wish we could answer that."

On Friday evening, Indianapolis police released the names of the eight deceased victims. They are: Matthew R. Alexander, 32; Samaria Blackwell, 19; Amarjeet Johal, 66; Jaswinder Kaur, 64; Jaswinder Singh, 68; Amarjit Sekhon, 48; Karli Smith, 19; and John Weisert, 74.

A statement by IMPD said the next of kin has been notified by the Marion County Coroner's Office. The cause of death will be determined after autopsies are complete, according to the statement.

IMPD said the names of those injured are not being released.

The mass shooting is the country's deadliest since 10 people were killed March 22 at a*grocery store in Boulder, Colorado.

Thursday night's killings began when a gunman "got out of his car, and pretty quickly started some random shooting outside the facility," McCartt said.

The gunman then "went inside and did not get very far into the facility at all," while shooting others there, McCartt told CNN earlier Friday.

Laveda Chester told CNN's "OutFront with Erin Burnett" that she was arriving for her overnight shift when she heard one pop and thought it might be a car accident. She said she looked around and didn't see one. But then she saw the gunman running toward the building with a rifle in his hand.

She waited until he went in so she could drive away without drawing the gunman's attention. She went to another parking lot and called police. She said she then tried to warn other arriving workers that there was a shooting going on. Some stopped and some drove past her.

Two employees inside the building at the time heard as many as 10 gunshots, they told*CNN affiliate WISH. The men left the building and watched as about 30 police cars responded, they said.

"Thank God for being here because I thought I was going to get shot," one of them, Jeremiah Miller, told WISH.

Investigators have heard the shooting lasted "just a couple minutes -- that it did not last very long," McCartt said.

"My understanding is, by the time that officers entered ... the situation was over -- that the suspect took his life very shortly before officers entered the facility," McCartt told reporters.

There were at least 100 people in the facility when the shooting began, he said. Many were on their dinner break or changing shifts.

Four people were found dead outside and four others, not counting the shooter, were dead inside, McCartt said.

The incident marks at least the*45th mass shooting in the United States*since the*Atlanta-area spa shootings*on March 16. CNN considers an incident to be a mass shooting if four or more people, excluding the gunman, are wounded or killed by gunfire.

Re: Fedex Mass Shooting Claims 8 Lives

This is a perfect example of how things could be improved in the US. His name should have been flagged back in March 2020 preventing him from purchasing any guns.

If you get committed to a loony bin after making statements about suicide by cop... definitely should be flagged as someone not fit to own firearms.

Not to say it would have stopped him, but it could have

I agree. They just need to come up with a fair way to go about it. Where people who aren't really threats don't get their gun taken away, and people who are do.
