(KINNESAW, Ga.) — Police in Cobb County, Ga., say they found and disabled several incendiary devices at a FedEx warehouse where an employee armed with a shotgun wounded six people early Tuesday morning before turning the gun on himself, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Police declined to describe the devices, which were discovered during a sweep of the warehouse.
Cobb County Police identified the shooter as 19-year-old package handler Geddy L. Kramer, and said he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
One of the victims was still listed in critical condition Tuesday night.
The shooting erupted at 5:54 a.m. at a FedEx warehouse near the Cobb County Airport in Kennesaw, Ga., said police spokesman Sgt. Dana Pierce.
Authorities say Kramer was dressed in black and had ammunition draped across his chest. A FedEx worker who saw Kramer described him as looking “like Rambo.”
Liza Aiken told reporters, “We can’t even bring cellphones into the warehouse. As soon as I saw guns strapped to his chest and everything, I knew something was wrong.”
Aiken added, “As soon as I saw him, I ran the other way.”
More than 100 police and federal officers descended on the sprawling FedEx hub and surrounded the building, but shortly before 9 a.m. police said the shooter was dead.
FedEx issued a statement Tuesday morning saying in part, “Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected, and with their families and friends.”
