According to police, the unidentified gunman who opened fire this morning at a FedEx sorting facility in Georgia was also armed with a number of explosive devices. The, incendiary devices, described as "Molotov cocktails," weren't used in the attack and were disabled by police.
As of Tuesday afternoon, two of the six victims—a 28-year-old man and a 52-year-old woman—remain in critical condition. Two others are in stable condition, and two were treated and released.
"With the two people still in surgery, there's still quite a bit of work for them," Dr. Michael Nitzken of WellStar Kennestone Hospital in Marietta, Ga., told the Los Angeles Times."The direct blast of a shotgun is concerning, but others were peripheral damage."
One witness said the shooter, described by police as FedEx Package handler, was dressed like "Rambo."
From the Los Angeles Times:
"We can't even bring cellphones into the warehouse," Liza Aiken told reporters. "As soon as I saw guns strapped to his chest and everything, I knew something was wrong."
"I mean he looked like he was heading into war," Aiken said. "As soon as I saw him, I ran the other way."
She also described him as an "immature little boy" because last week he had been annoying her by pointing a barcode laser scanner at her eyes. Aiken was escorted away from reporters by another FedEx employee before she could finish her story.
