She said four people were transported to hospitals, one in critical condition with gunshot injuries and three others with various injuries.

Two others were treated at the facility by medical staff. Ms Cook said “multiple” others walked to hospitals in nearby areas.

She added that the gunman had died and the public is not believed to be in immediate danger.

FedEx released a statement saying it was cooperating with authorities and working to get more information.

“We are aware of the tragic shooting at our FedEx ground facility near the Indianapolis airport,” the company said.

“Safety is our top priority, and our thoughts are with all those who are affected.”

Live video from news outlets at the scene showed crime scene tape in the parking lot outside the facility.

A witness who said he works at the facility told US media he saw a man with a gun after hearing several gunshots.

“I saw a man with a submachine gun of some sort, an automatic rifle, and he was firing in the open,” Jeremiah Miller said.

Another man who told media he was a witness said his niece was sitting in her car in the driver’s seat when the gunfire erupted, and she was wounded.

“She got shot on her left arm,” Parminder Singh said.

“She’s fine, she’s in the hospital now.”

He said his niece did not know the shooter.

Family members of workers reportedly gathered at a local hotel to await word on loved ones.

Some said employees were not allowed to have their phones with them while working shifts at the facility, making it difficult to contact them.

The FedEx facility is located close to the Indianapolis International airport.

The attack is the latest in a string of mass shootings across the US in recent months.

Eight people were shot dead by a gunman at massage businesses in Atlanta, Georgia, while another gunman killed 10 people when he opened fire in a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado.

This is the third mass shooting this year in Indianapolis.

Five people, including a pregnant woman, were shot and killed in January, and a man was accused of killing three adults and a child before abducting his daughter during an argument at a home in March.
