Cook said in an earlier briefing that authorities believed there was no longer an active threat to the community.

"Safety is our top priority, and our thoughts are with all those who are affected", it said.

Another man, Ian Johnston, told the news outlet that his wife, who works at the facility, had texted to tell him there was an active shooter inside.

No law enforcement officers were injured, according to Cook.

"I am heartbroken by the mass shooting at the FedEx facility here in Indianapolis and praying for all affected by this tragedy", he said via Twitter.

Family members gathered at a nearby hotel to await word on loved ones - and some employees were bused there for tearful reunions.

Miller said: "This made me stand up and actually look out the entrance door, and I saw a man with a submachine gun of some sort, an automatic rifle, and he was firing in the open".

Fedex released a statement early on Friday saying it was cooperating with authorities and working to get more information.

Police said 10 people suffered critical injuries, more than 20 people suffered serious injuries, and more than 30 people were wounded but still able to walk.

The facility is located near the Indianapolis International Airport. Most employees aren't allowed to carry cellphones inside the FedEx building, making contact with them hard.

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 at argument at a home in March. Craig McCartt, Indianapolis deputy chief of criminal investigations, joins "CBS This Morning" to discuss the developments. "They came in they went in and they did their job. And a lot of them are trying to face this because this is a site that no one should ever have to see", Cook said.

A man told WTTV that his niece was sitting in the driver's seat of her vehicle when the gunfire erupted, and she was wounded.

Singh said she called him and told him there had been shots fired in the FedEx building.

"And you know, Indianapolis Metro Police Department, the officers responded", Cook said. Other injured people took themselves to hospitals in the area, she added.

A worker at the air freight fatality told local television station WRTV that he was eating when he heard what sounded like "two loud metal clangs" followed by more shots.
