Employee opens fire at FedEx sorting center, wounding six

KENNESAW, Ga. (AP) — A FedEx employee wearing ammunition draped across his chest ‘‘like Rambo’’ opened fire Tuesday at a package-sorting center outside Atlanta, wounding six people before apparently committing suicide, police and witnesses said.

In addition to a shotgun, the gunman also had an undisclosed number of molotov cocktails, but he did not use them in the attack, police said.
