FedEx Facility Shooting Injures 6 In Georgia

(Kennesaw, GA) Six people are being treated after a shooting at a FedEx warehouse in Kennesaw, GA this morning.

Three people are reportedly in critical condition, two with life threatening wounds.

It has now been confirmed the shooter, who was an employee, took his own life.

One witness told the Atlanta Journal Constitution the shooter was a 19-year-old employee who was a package handling worker.

He reportedly had several guns, ammo and a knife.

There is a security checkpoint where employees are screened through a metal detector.

A security guard was shot, reportedly at that checkpoint.

WGCL-TV spoke with a woman who worked with the shooter.

She said she had problems with him as recently as last Thursday.

She told Bell the shooter was taking a laser package scanner and flashing it in her eyes. She reported to management and he was verbally reprimanded.

She also said the shooter didn’t see her and is thankful he didn’t because if he did, she is not sure what would have happened.

FedEx released a statement:

“We can confirm that an incident occurred early Tuesday morning at a FedEx Ground facility in Kennesaw, Georgia. Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected, and with their families and friends. We are grateful for the assistance of law enforcement. The situation is now stabilized and we are focused on the needs of our team members and cooperating with the law enforcement investigation of this tragedy.”
