“With less than 12 hours since the shooting, it would be premature to speculate on that motivation,” FBI Special Agent Paul Keenan told reporters during a press conference.

“He got out of his car and pretty quickly started some random shooting outside the facility,” McCartt said. “There was no confrontation with anyone that was there. There was no disturbance. There was no argument. He just appeared to randomly start shooting, and that began in the parking lot.”

Update as of 12:29 Pacific Time- President Biden called the shooting “the latest in a string of tragedies” and has ordered flags to be lowered at half-staff at the White House, public buildings and grounds, embassies,  and military posts .  VP Kamala Harris also made a statement- “Yet again we have families in America that are grieving the loss of their family members because of gun violence,” she told reporters Friday. “There is no question this violence must end and we are thinking of the families that lost their loved ones. And the president will speak later about the case.

Authorities have identified the suspected gunman as 19-year-old Brandon Scott Hole who was a former employee of FEDEX. The shooting rampage began outside in the parking lot and then the shooter proceeded to shoot inside the building.
