KENNESAW, Ga. – Six people were wounded Tuesday in a shooting at a FedEx facility in Kennesaw, Georgia, officials said.

A spokesman for Cobb County Police described the incident as “active and fluid.”

“We have multiple victims at this time that have been transported to a local area hospital,” Public Information Officer Mike Bowman 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.”

A caller alerted police to the shooting at 5:54 a.m. at the facility, Bowman said. It is located about a 25-mile drive northwest of downtown Atlanta.

The six injured people were taken to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital, where at least one person was undergoing surgery, hospital spokesman Tyler Pearson said.

FedEx is “aware of the situation,” company spokesman Scott Fielder. “The primary concern is the safety and well-being of our team members, first responders and others affected. FedEx is cooperating with authorities.”
