Cook further revealed that the shooter killed himself, adding that there is no active threat to the community at present. The police spokesperson also narrated the details of the shooting.

According to her, the police arrived at about 11:00 pm local time to an active shooter situation at the FedEx facility. Without any hesitation, officers entered the facility. Cook said:


"The officers responded, they came in, they went in, and they did their job. A lot of them are trying to face this because this is a sight no one should ever have to see."

Cook further said that at least four people were rushed to the hospital with gunshot wounds while at least three others were taken to the hospital with several injuries.

Medics treated and released two others at the scene, while others transported themselves to hospitals nearby. No police officer was injured in the shooting.


Miller is grateful to God for being alive because he thought he was going to get shot.


Cook said an active investigation into the shooting had begun and that it was too early to determine if the shooter was a staff at the facility or the motive behind the shooting.

Two male staff at the facility, Jeremiah Miller and Timothy Boillat, told reporters that they heard as many as ten gunshots. They first thought the sound was coming from a car.

However, when they heard more shots, one of them stood up to see a man holding a weapon. Miller said the shooter was yelling things he could not understand. He hid away from him so he would not see him.


Boillat said he saw a body on the floor behind a vehicle. Both men left the building and saw about 30 police vehicles arriving at the scene. Miller is grateful to God for being alive because he thought he was going to get shot.

Fox 59 reporters spoke to a family member of one of the victims, who revealed his niece was in her car when the gunman began shooting at people.

Meanwhile, FedEx has expressed shock and sadness over the deaths of its staff following the tragic incident. The company consoled with the victims' families, adding that its team members' safety top priority and cooperating with investigating authorities.
