    Update (0600ET): The fatality numbers from America's latest mass shooting are in. At least 8 people were killed during last night's shooting rampage at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis. Those 8 were officially declared dead at the scene. At least 4 others have been taken to the hospital and treated for injuries, with at least one of those in critical condition.

    Indianapolis police responded just after 2300 local time on Thursday to reports of shots being fired at the facility near Indianapolis’s airport and encountered the shootings still in progress, according to Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department spokeswoman Genae Cook said at a news conference.

    The shooter is believed to have taken his own life at the scene, according to police. A reporter for the New York Post spoke with witnesses who were at the scene when the shooting started.
    A FedEx employee, Jeremiah Miller, told the outlet he saw a shooter outside, through an entrance door.
    “I saw a man with a submachine gun of some sort, an automatic rifle, and he was firing in the open,” Miller said.
    “I immediately ducked down and got scared,” he said. Miller’s coworker, Timothy Boillat, said he saw one person on the ground near a vehicle.
    One of the shooting victims was shot in her left arm as she sat in her car in the parking lot, her uncle, Parminder Singh told CBS 4 reporter Courtney Crown.
    "She called. She said there was a shooting in the Fedex [building]," Singh said.
    He said his niece was hospitalized and is doing "fine."

    Meanwhile, US Rep. André Carson, who represents much of Indianapolis, tweeted the following: "I am heartbroken by the mass shooting at the FedEx facility here in Indianapolis and praying for all affected by this tragedy."

    Indianapolis News WISH-TV reports Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) received reports of an active shooter around 11:10 pm local time Thursday at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis.
    The incident was reported at the FedEx facility in the 8900 block of Mirabel Road in Indianapolis, near Indianapolis International Airport.




    Dispatchers declared a "mass casualty, Level 1," which means the incident involved less than ten surviving victims.
    IMPD has yet to release information on how many people were shot or their conditions. There's also no information if the shooter is in custody.

    Here's the IMPD scanner audio of shots fired at the FedEx facility. The dispatcher said at least ten shots were fired from the entrance or inside the facility. One caller (from inside the facility's control room) told dispatchers she had no visual on the suspect but heard the shots.

    I'll bet Ol' Shotgun Joe just loves these ''incidents'' that just happen to occur when he is pushing his agenda. We'll wait and see how white the shooter turns out to be...
    ''... I believe that the maintenance of the rights and authority reserved to the states and to the people...are a safeguard to the continuance of a free government...whereas the consolidation of the states into one vast Republic, sure to be aggressive abroad and despotic at home, will be the certain precursor of that ruin which has overwhelmed all those that have preceded it.''- Gen. Robert E. Lee

    Would not surprise me if this was an AR, because AR = machine gun, right?

    allow a weird thought: what if, like Saddam H., the dems are secretly offering a briefcase of money to the shooter's family if he pulls the trigger. to get the dems really pushing , we need another Va. Tech to really get the pot boiling. should be an interesting summer. heck, its snowing up north and here on da bayou, its cool for April. prep and pray, the end has arrived.

    Gee whiz, just a day after two Libtard CONgress critters introduced a full ban and confiscation bill on mags over 10rd capacity, another "mass shooting" occurs.

    Quite the koinkidink, don't you think?

    Europe used to have empires. They were run by emperors.
    Then we had kingdoms. They were run by kings.
    Now we have countries...

    Compared to the Generals and Congressmen who have tortured, maimed and killed hundreds of millions of people since 1900. The killings by "civilians", even counting Yankee false flag shootings in USA, don't even amount to 1% of the murders committed by our glorious peoples leaders.
    Disarm the kill crazy politicians and high priests of war.
