Gunman fatally shoots himself in Chicago-area FedEx facility, police say no one else injured
BEDFORD PARK, Illinois (AP) ' Police say a gunman has fired several shots inside a FedEx shipping facility in suburban Chicago before fatally shooting himself, but no other injuries are reported.
Several law enforcement agencies responding to Thursday's scene helped employees exit the facility and secure the building. Riot police who went inside discovered that the shooter had killed himself with a revolver.
Cook County Sheriff's spokesman Frank Bilecki says police used a remote camera to identify the gunman and look for any victims. The gunman's name is being withheld pending notification of family.
FedEx spokesman Bryson Thornton says, "We are just relieved there are no other reported injuries at this time."
