FedEx Shooting: Employee Opens Fire, Commits Suicide


Fedex Shooting in Georgia

A FedEx employee went on a shooting rampage at a Georgia warehouse on Tuesday morning, before turning the gun on himself and committing suicide.

According to police, one of the six injured employees are listed in critical condition.

The FedEx shooting occurred at a warehouse located at 1675 Airport Road, Kennesaw, near the Cobb County Airport.

Police first listed an “active investigation” and then just before 9 a.m. they announced the shooters suicide. The man was found in the Bay Area of the warehouse. In a public statement Cobb County police said, “We are confirming that the suspect in this case is deceased from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.”

After announcing the shooters suicide, police continued to sweet the Fedex warehouse for any further threats.

A FedEx boss called police at approximately 6 a.m., warning them that the shooter had a gun pointed at his head.
