The gunman in the Indianapolis FedEx shooting legally bought two rifles after police had taken away his shotgun in March 2020, The New York Times reported. 

Police said Brandon Hole, 19, who shot and killed eight people at an Indianapolis FedEx facility on Thursday, legally purchased the firearms a couple of months after his shotgun was confiscated because his mother called and voiced worry over his mental state.

"The suspect's mother contacted law enforcement to report he might try to commit 'suicide by cop,'" special agent Paul Keenan of the FBI's Indianapolis field office said. This situation is when an individual will provoke law enforcement to shoot them to defend themselves or civilians. 

The FBI interviewed him a month later in April 2020. Keenan said they did not find that Hole possessed "Racially Motivated Violent Extremism (RMVE) ideology."
