Victims, families in FedEx mass shooting file lawsuit against gun distributor

Victims and families of victims of the April 2021 mass shooting at an Indianapolis FedEx facility have filed a lawsuit against the gun distributor and magazine manufacturers of the weapon used in the attack that killed eight and injured five others.

The suspected gunman, Brandon Scott Hole, opened fire outside the building and in a locker room area of a FedEx facility just outside of Indianapolis, shooting indiscriminately for three minutes before walking back into the locker room and taking his own life, according to police.

American Tactical — the alleged exclusive gun distributor of the high-capacity magazine used in the shooting — its president, its marketing director and magazine manufacturer Schmeisser GmbH, are all named in the suit. They are accused of negligence, public nuisance and unlawful marketing.

“Defendants deliberately marketed and sold HCMs to the general public — and not just any HCM, but 60-round magazines that have approximately six times the killing capacity of standard magazines. Defendants sold these HCMs without a single safeguard, screening, or limit,” the lawsuit alleges.
