KENNESAW, Ga. (AP) — Police say a suspect in a shooting at a FedEx center outside Atlanta that wounded six people is dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Cobb County police spokesman Michael Bowman said Tuesday the suspect is dead but police are still sweeping the package-sorting facility north of Atlanta to make sure there are no other threats.

Police have not reported any other deaths from the shootings that occurred before daybreak. Six people were taken to a local hospital, where a spokesman says one was taken into surgery with potentially critical injuries. He says several others were able to walk off ambulances when they arrived.

The suspected shooter's identity was not immediately released.
