Two people are reported dead after a postal worker allegedly opened fire at a sorting facility in Memphis, Tennessee, before 2 p.m. on Tuesday.

WJHL reports the facility in which the shooting occurred is located at 2801 Park Avenue and the scene was secure by 2:50 p.m.

WREG’s Jonee Wilson notes the FBI reported the shooter is also dead from a “self-inflicted gun shot” wound.

New York Daily News points out that the area in which the shooting occurred is for postal workers only, so no customers were there or harmed.
