At least eight people sustained gunshot wounds and a suspected shooter is believed to have taken his own life after a “mass casualty situation” was reported at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis, according to Indianapolis Metropolitan police department spokesperson Genae Cook.

The incident happened at the building located at 8951 Mirabel Road in Indianapolis, WRTV reported. Multiple victims have been reported. The facility is located near the Indianapolis international airport.

Ms Cook told the media that the shooter is believed to have taken his own life and said that there was no “active threat” to the community at this time. At least eight are believed to have sustained gunshot wounds.

Those with gunshot injuries have been taken to hospitals as per local reports, however, the police didn’t yet confirm the seriousness of the injuries.

Sgt. John Perrine, Information Officer with the Indiana State Police Public, requested commuters to take alternate routes. He said: “I-70 is closed in both directions between I-465 and Ronald Regan Pkwy due to police activity in the area. Please seek alternate routes.”

CNN reported that FedEx is cooperating with the investigating agencies. Jim Masilak told CNN: “Safety is our top priority, and our thoughts are with all those who are affected. We are working to gather more information and are cooperating with investigating authorities.”

Family members of the victims were distraught. Fox 59 quoted a man, Ian Johnston, whose wife works at the facility. She texted him to inform him of the shooting, he told reporters.

“My wife works in there and she texted me to tell me there’s an active shooter and we communicated back and forth for a while, she’s since notified me she’s okay.” He added, “After I communicated with her for a while, then it went silent for a while, so I came here just to see what was going on and she texted me I’m okay.”
