  • Some loser shot up a Fedex facility in GA

    It's too bad this idiot didn't just go shoot himself in the woods.

    It's too bad that he was conceived.

    It's too bad that no one there was armed (most assuredly against Fedex employment policies) to stop this threat.


    Hundreds of authorities from multiple agencies remain on the scene of an early morning workplace shooting at the Airport Road FedEx facility in Kennesaw.
    At least six people have been taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital, three of them in critical condition. The unidentified suspect is dead, Cobb County police Sgt. Dana Pierce told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

    The AJC has reporters and photographers at the FedEx facility as well as the hospital, and will provide minute-by-minute updates throughout the day.
    11:41 a.m.: There is still “quite a bit of work to do” with the two people in surgery, Dr. Michael Nitzken said. One of the critical patients required “advance life support.”

    When the hospital was notified of the shooting, “we were in the middle of shift change,” which “proved to be to our benefit because we had double staff.
    “As a level 2 trauma center, WellStar Kennestone is well-prepared for this. Patients I was responsible for were conscious. One of the critic
    al patients required advanced life support; put on medical ventilation.
    The 28-year-old man is on a ventilator. Four of the six patients will require hospitalization. The critical patients were likely shot at “close range.”

    “We have protocols to manage multiple victims,” he said. “Fortunately, we don’t see this many from a shooting. Because of our training, we were well-prepared.”
    11:34 a.m.: Just before 7 a.m., WellStar Kennestone Hospital received six patients: a 28-year-old man and a 52-year-old woman currently in critical condition and in surgery; a 22-year-old man in critical condition; a 38-year-old man in stable condition; a 42-year-old woman who has been treated and released; and a 19-year-old man who has been treated and release is currently pending, Nitzken said. Two of the patients have injuries that are considered life-threatening, he said.

    11:14 a.m.: One man and one woman are in critical condition, Cobb police told the AJC. The suspect died of a self-inflicted shotgun wound, authorities said.
    10:42 a.m.: Two patients are in critical condition, Cobb police told the AJC.
    10:23 a.m.: At 11:30 a.m., officials will hold a press conference at a media staging area on Tower Road. An ER doctor at WellStar Kennestone Hospital will attend the press conference and give status reports on all of the victims involved in today’s incident, Marietta police spokesman Officer David Baldwin said. “We will also release some very basic info about the victims (i.e. age and gender),” he said.

    10:09 a.m.: Police escorted a bus filled with FedEx employees from the shipping plant to Sparkles skating rink, where they were taken after being questioned to meet with families and loved ones and to arrange rides home.

    9:55 a.m.: FedEx employee Liza Aiken saw the shooter, a 19-year-old man she said was a loader, just before she heard gunfire. Aiken was doing address corrections on some packages when she said she “heard a clink.

    “I looked to my left. I saw him standing there and the knife was on the ground. He dropped his knife. He had an assault rifle. He had bullets strapped to his chest like Rambo. I mean he looked like he was heading into war. As soon as I saw him, I ran the other way. I ran and made sure that people upstairs were gone. He was in all black. I think he had a camo vest. He had an assault rifle and bullets strapped to his chest.”

    Aiken said she previously reported the shooting suspect to her superiors. She said he pointed a work laser in her eye.

    9:50 a.m.: FedEx employee Randy Kitfield said: “I looked down hallway and I see somebody run with a gun on the other side of the terminal. I thought, maybe it’s the cops; I thought maybe a bomb scare or something.”

    9:25 a.m.: “We can confirm that an incident occurred early Tuesday morning at a FedEx Ground facility in Kennesaw, Georgia,” company spokesman Scott Fiedler said in a statement to the AJC. “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.”

    9:03 a.m.: “We are not looking for anybody else at this point,” Pierce said.
    8:55 a.m.: “We have one individual that is deceased that we are describing as the suspect,” Pierce said. “He is probably deceased from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was located in the bay area of FedEx. We are completing the ground floor sweep at this point … with the assistance of K-9.”
    8:48 a.m.: The suspect is dead.

    8:31 a.m.: Sparkles Family Fun Centers, 1000 McCollum Pkwy., has been designated as the location for families to check on relatives of FedEx employees who were at the scene of the workplace shooting.

    8:23 a.m.: “Right now, we’re still securing the scene at the FedEx location,” Pierce told the AJC. “We’re going to enlarge that perimeter to another 1,200 feet. That’s so that we can actually check in and around that area for any kind of secondary devices. That’s very standard in these kinds of situations.

    “We’re trying to lockdown that immediate area of the FedEx location, trying to look at all the trailers, all the trucks. It’s going to take a lot of time to be able secure it. We’re not confirming anything at this point as far as any kind of device.”

    8:14 a.m.: About 5:54 a.m. today, Cobb police received a call about an active shooter at the FedEx facility at 1675 Airport Road in Kennesaw, Officer Mike Bowman told the AJC.

    “We have multiple victims at this time that have been transported to a local area hospital,” he said in a statement. “We have multiple agencies assisting us with this incident. The area around the building has been secured and the officers are now clearing the incident location. This is still an active and fluid situation.” It is not clear if a suspect is in custody.
    7:55 a.m.: Michael Hogland, a ground driver at the FedEx facility, said: “(My boss) called me about 6 o’clock this morning saying there was a guy inside. Shot a security guard. He had a gun pointed at (my boss) and said, ‘Don’t worry about getting here on time.’ “
    7:45 a.m.: Hundreds of police are on the scene of a shooting at the FedEx facility in Kennesaw. It’s an active scene, police tell the AJC’s John Spink.
    7:28 a.m.: Six patients have been taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital and more are coming, according to Channel 2 Action News.
    First report of shooting

    Authorities are on the scene of a shooting at the FedEx facility in Kennesaw.
    “FedEx is aware of the situation,” company spokesman Scott Fiedler said in a statement to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “Our primary concern is the safety and well being of our team members, first responders and others affected. FedEx is cooperating with authorities.”

    Cobb fire Lt. Dan Dupree deferred all questions to the Cobb County Police Department, which was not immediately available for comment.

    “We are assisting police at the FedEx complex on an incident,” he told the AJC.
    The AJC has photographers and reporters at FedEx and WellStar Kennestone Hospital.

      He had an assault rifle. He had bullets strapped to his chest like Rambo.
      Um, OK, hoplophobe much? Big scary gunz.... Except.

      The suspect died of a self-inflicted shotgun wound, authorities said.
      Of course, that fits with the current narrative - anything that looks scary is an "assault rifle".

        This answers a question that I've had in the back of my mind for quite a while. I wondered if FedEx guys every went "postal". This explains it.
        Getting shot hurts! Don't under estimate the power of live ammo. A .22LR can kill you! I personally feel that it's best to avoid being shot by any caliber. Your vest may stop the bullet, but you'll still get a nice bruise or other injury to remember the experience.

          I heard that this was caused by stress induced by the merger of Fedex & United Parcel Service. The employees are now to be known as Fed Ups.rimshot.gif
