"Safety is our top priority, and our thoughts are with all those who are affected", the statement said.

Jeremiah Miller had finished a shift at the FedEx facility and was preparing to work a second consecutive shift when he and a coworker, Timothy Boillat, heard gunfire, up to 10 shots.

"We're hoping for the best", she said.

It is unclear how many people have been shot at this time or their conditions, but multiple victims have been transported to various hospitals in the area, Cook said.

At the end of March, a gunman killed four people, including a 9-year-old boy, at a real estate office in Southern California.

FedEx said in a statement early Friday that it was cooperating with authorities and working to get more information.

A witness who said he works at the facility told USA media he saw a man with a gun after hearing several gunshots.

The gunman, said to have been acting alone, is reported to have killed himself.
