4 dead, including gunman, in shooting at UPS facility in San Francisco

San Francisco police respond to shooting

A UPS employee opened fire on colleagues inside a massive distribution center in San Francisco on Thursday morning, police and witnesses said.

Authorities say a shooting at a San Francisco UPS warehouse has killed three people as well as the shooter.

UPS released a statement Wednesday saying, "UPS confirms there was a shooting incident involving 4 employees within the company's facility in San Francisco earlier this morning".

Neighbor Raymond Deng said he heard up to eight rapid gunshots.

San Francisco Assistant Police Chief Toney Chaplin told reporters that officers found wounded victims and brought them to safety Wednesday.

Two other employees were injured in the shooting, Peterson says.

Police officials did not immediately say if anyone was wounded or killed.

Deng, 30, a data scientist for a start-up company, also saw workers fleeing and another group of about 10 who gathered on the roof and held their hands up as police arrived. They walked away calmly with emergency vehicles nearby. When he ran to the window, he says there was a brief moment after the four shots and then he says he thinks he heard four more then saw a lot of people running out of the building. KTVU has reported that the shooting, which took place on the facility's main sorting floor, was carried out by a "current employee".

Uniformed UPS employees are being led out in a line by officers next to a highway.

The building is on the eastern edge of San Francisco, about 2.5 miles from downtown San Francisco. "We can not provide information as to the identity of persons involved at this time, pending the police investigation", the statement said.

Police sealed off streets in the area after the shooting, which took place around 9 a.m. local time. Please continue to avoid the area and shelter in place until we have further information.
