San Francisco Shooting At UPS Facility Leave At Least 4 Dead

Four people were killed Wednesday in an early morning shooting in San Francisco.

Police said the shooting took place at the UPS San Francisco Customer Center, just east of Franklin Square.

KGO-TV reported it was told a single shooter went into the building during a morning meeting, and the suspect may be a disgruntled employee. It said a witness believed one driver was shooting at other drivers during the meeting.

David Phister, who told the station he lives across the street, said he heard four shots at about 9 a.m. He said he then heard four more shots before people began streaming out of the building.

Aerial footage showed police leading dozens of people out of a building shortly before a tactical vehicle arrived on the scene.

Initial reports Wednesday morning said the shooter wounded three people and killed two others before he turned the gun on himself.

KCBS Radio reported the shooter, a man believed to be a UPS driver, was taken into custody and was being transported to the hospital.

Brent Andrew, spokesman for Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, said the hospital had received victims, but he did not know exactly how many or their conditions.

No police officers were reported injured in the incident.

“UPS confirms there was an incident involving employees within the company’s facility in San Francisco earlier this morning,” UPS said in a statement. “Local law enforcement have control of the facility and are conducting an investigation. The company is cooperating with law enforcement. We cannot provide information as to the identity of persons involved at this time, pending the police investigation.”

Police issued a request for those in the area to shelter in place until police could complete a search of the area.
