At least six people were injured when a gunman opened fire in a FedEx building in Kennesaw, Ga., Tuesday morning.

Gunfire erupted in a warehouse near the Cobb County Airport, about 30 miles northwest of Atlanta just before 6 a.m. The male suspect fled after the shooting. He was at large for several hours before he committed suicide.

“FedEx is aware of the situation,” FedEx spokesman Scott Fiedler said in a statement early Tuesday. “Our primary concern is the safety and well-being of our team members, first responders and others affected. FedEx is cooperating with authorities.”
