Indianapolis massacre shooter

INDIANAPOLIS – The suspect in the massacre at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis, USA, is a 19-year-old former parcel delivery worker. The authorities had already put him on the radar, CNN reports based on anonymous police sources.

The reason for the bloodshed is unknown. Authorities have not yet revealed anything about Brandon Scott Hole’s possible motives, as the perpetrator is called. A family member would have previously warned authorities about Hole’s potentially violent nature, according to CNN.

President Biden expressed his disgust at the shooting in a statement. He ordered flags on the White House and government buildings to be hung at half mast on Friday. Too many Americans die from firearms every day, according to the president. “We can and must do more to save lives,” said Biden, who recently announced measures to tackle gun violence.

Hole shot eight people on Thursday evening (local time) and then killed himself. Several people were injured. The victims are said to include several Sikhs who worked at the site. According to the police, the incident lasted at most a few minutes and was already over once officers arrived.

The US is often startled by such shootings. In Indianapolis it has happened several times this year. Friday is also 14 years ago that the deadliest shooting at an American school took place. More than 30 people were killed on the campus of Virginia Tech University in Blacksburg.
