A shooting at a FedEx facility in Kennesaw, Georgia has left at least six people injured. According to NBC News, police are still looking for a male gunman who is said to be “at large.” The shooting at the shipping facility occurred a little before 6 a.m. and employees were immediately placed in lockdown. Over 50 emergency vehicles arrived to assist anyone who may have been injured as police didn’t know how bad things would be upon arriving.
FedEx spokesman Scott Fiedler released the following statement:
“FedEx is aware of the situation. Our primary concern is the safety and well-being of our team members, first responders and others affected. FedEx is cooperating with authorities.”
At this time, police are working diligently to comb through the building and ensure that everyone is safe. The surrounding areas are being searched as the gunman has not been located. It is unknown if the gunman is a disgruntled employee or what a possible motive could be since he has not yet been identified.
Cobb County Police spokesperson, Officer Michael Bowman, said:
“The area around the building has been secured and the officers are now clearing the incident location. This is still an active and fluid situation.”
ABC News reports that those injured in the FedEx shooting have been transported to WellStar Kennestone Hospital but their conditions are unknown. Some of the injured are in surgery which suggests that their injuries were serious. No deaths have been reported at this time.
As previously reported by Inquisitr.com, another Cobb County shooting occurred just last week. One woman was hospitalized after being shot by a male gunman; her current condition is unknown.
