BEDFORD PARK, Ill. — Police say a gunman who killed himself after firing several shots inside a Chicago-area FedEx shipping center was looking for his wife.
They identified the shooter as 28-year-old Benyamin (ben-YAH’-mihn) Robinson of Chicago. Bedford Park Police Chief Daniel Godfrey says Robinson’s wife is an employee at the 24-hour facility and the couple had “recent problems.”
He says Robinson walked into the building Thursday morning yelling his wife’s name, and she hunkered down in her office.
The gunman fired several shots before fatally shooting himself inside a vehicle at the facility. Nobody else was injured. Police say they found Robinson’s body in the vehicle.
The couple’s children were found at another location, and were safe.
Bedford Park is about 15 miles southwest of Chicago.
