The incident was reported at the FedEx facility at Mirabel Road in Indianapolis, WRTV said. Police were still working at the scene conducting interviews in the early hours of Friday.

The FedEx facility involved is near Indianapolis International Airport, but it is not part of the FedEx hub at the airport.

"We are aware of the tragic shooting at our ground facility near the Indianapolis airport", the company said in a statement.

Footage from the scene shows police tape in the auto park outside and multiple emergency service vehicles.

Two employees inside the building at the time told CNN affiliate WISH-TV that they heard as many as ten gunshots.

Last month, eight people were fatally shot at massage businesses across the Atlanta area, and 10 died in gunfire at a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado.

"We're hoping for the best", she said.

At first Jeremiah Miller and Timothy Boillat thought the sound was from a vehicle, but after hearing more, Miller stood up and saw a man with a weapon, he told the station. "Safety is our top priority, and our thoughts are with all those who are affected", the statement said.

Local media cited a company spokesman as saying that FedEx is now considering reevaluating a policy that prohibits employees from having their phones with them during shifts, making it hard to contact them.

At the end of March, a gunman killed four people, including a 9-year-old boy, at a real estate office in Southern California.

Eight people shot and killed at a FedEx facility in the U.S. city of Indianapolis.

Another man who told media he was a witness said his niece was sitting in her vehicle in the driver's seat when the gunfire erupted, and she was wounded. They encountered an "active shooter incident", she said. "She's fine, she's in the hospital now".

Authorities say the shooter took his own life.
