Many of those who waited with Weisert are part of the Indianapolis Sikh community, as are four of the eight people who died in the shooting, the Sikh Coalition said.
At least 100 people were on the premises when the shooting broke out around 11 p.m., authorities said. The gunman, identified as former FedEx employee Brandon Scott Hole, took his own life after being confronted by police, according to police.
Hole was questioned by the FBI last year after his mother told police she was concerned he might attempt suicide with a police officer, the feds said.
His motive remains unclear.
“My heart aches to confirm that my naniji (maternal grandmother), Amarjeet Kaur Johal, is among those killed in the senseless shooting at the FedEx facility in Indianapolis,” Komal Chohan said, according to the Sikh Coalition.
“I have several family members who work at the facility in particular and are traumatized. My nani, my family and our families should not feel unsafe at work, in her place of worship or anywhere, ”continued Chohan.
“Enough is enough, our community has been through enough trauma.”
