Authorities have identified the suspect in the mass shooting at an Indianapolis FedEx facility Thursday night as 19-year-old Brandon Scott Hole of Indiana.
Two law enforcement officials briefed on the matter provided the identity to the Associated Press. The investigators are searching a home in Indianapolis associated with Hole and have seized evidence, including desktop computers and other electronic media, the officials said. The officials could not discuss the matter publicly and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.
The shooting Thursday night left eight people dead and several wounded.
Who is Brandon Scott Hole?
Indianapolis police reported Friday afternoon that Hole was a former FedEx employee, and last worked for the company in 2020.
Indianapolis police confiscated a gun and took Hole into custody last year following suicidal threats.
An IMPD report from March 3, 2020, references a mental health check for suicidal tendencies in the 1100 block of 1109 North Huber St., and lists Hole, then 18, as being arrested. It says police seized a shotgun “from dangerous person.”
