ATLANTA (REUTERS) - Six people were hurt in a shooting at a FedEx Corp facility at a suburban Atlanta airport early on Tuesday, and the suspected shooter died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said.

An active shooter was reported at the facility in Kennesaw, Georgia, about 40km northwest of Atlanta, just before 6am EST, said Cobb County Police spokesman Mike Bowman.

Officers continued to search the area mid-morning to ensure there were no additional safety threats, Bowman said.

Six patients in varying conditions were taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital in Marietta.
