    Gunman found dead of apparent self-inflicted gun shot.

    Beleive that Fedex facilities are gun free/victim rich zones for the employees.

    LOL ABC's reportage has been taken-over by their spiel checker, the dead was found in the "Bay Area[sic]" - capitalized as a geographic location.

    I know the fedex depot in west Dallas is gun free - dropped off a package once there.
    I was concerned for the ladies working there - open till 9pm and it is in the middle of gang territories, homeless and crack addicts.
    Larges signs posted in several locations in parking area and on building by doors.

    I've not seen signs restricting customers at any of our local Fedex facilitites.

    With the very pro self-defense philosophy of Kennesaw, it is a shame someone did not convince Fedex management to mirror the town's attitude. One good guy with a gun might have made a substantial difference.

    Found conversations about Fedex No Guns signs, but no actual confirmed signs = verified and with picture.

    Neither UPS nor Fedex has such signs locally - been to both fairly recently.

    The outlet sites where customers do business, are not posted here. ALL facilities where only employees have access (terminals, offices, vehicles, etc) are posted.

    Fedex provided unarmed security - one officer was among those shot.

    Strange mixture of signs - some in English and some not. Where might the location be?

    Guns Prohibited in FedEx Warehouse Where Gunman Opened Fire

    "... the sign which bans guns and appears to ban knives as well. Ironically, the Associated Press reports the FedEx gunman also "held a knife" during the early stages of his attack, so that ban was not effective either."
