May 1, 2014 - Kennesaw police report that on Tuesday Geddy Kramer a 19 year old employee at the FedEx facility as a baggage handler located at Cobb County Airport - McCollum Field went into work and went on a shooting spree shooting six people before killing himself.

The police placed the facility on lockdown and employees arriving to work were sent away. Several nearby roads were closed off including Old Highway 41 between McCollum and Cobb parkways.
