        At least six are injured, and multiple people were transported to a local hospital.

        The male gunman committed suicide inside the facility, which is about 25 from Atlanta.

        An eyewitness told Mashable that the shooter was a FedEx employee who was reportedly upset his manager.

At least six people were injured Tuesday morning in a shooting at a FedEx facility in Kennesaw, Ga., according to multiple reports. The gunman reportedly committed suicide inside the building, the Associated Press reports.

The call first came in at 5:44 a.m. ET, NBC News reports. The facility, which is about 25 miles from Atlanta, was put on lockdown as more than 50 police vehicles arrived on scene. Multiple victims were taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital.

Cobb County Police Sgt. Oceander Pierce told NBC affiliate WXIA-TV that the male suspect was at large for some time in the facility, which one former employee told Mashable is “a warehouse facility where FedEx trucks would dock in.” Another former employee said there are maybe 200 or less people working per shift and everyone gets along. “It’s a nice work place which is why this is shocking,” she says.

The FedEx facility has security officers, a third employee tells Mashable, but they aren’t armed. “If you were [armed] there was nothing they could do, they don’t have anything to match a weapon,” said Collin Harrison, 22.

What's with mail that turns employees into killers? It doesn't make sense to have security that cannot secure the people. The most they can do is keep employees from walking out with company items.

I'm guessing the gunman knew that.
Just being unique doesn't make you useful.
