San Francisco shooting near UPS facility leaves several people injured

A man dressed in a UPS uniform and armed with an "assault pistol" opened fire at a United Parcel Service Inc UPS.N package sorting hub in San Francisco, killing three people before fatally shooting himself in the head, police said. 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.

"Hayward Cook, who described himself as a UPS human resources manager, said he was interviewing people in a conference room when he heard five gunshots". The next thing he knew, he said, "a mob of UPS drivers" was running down the street screaming "shooter, 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".

The construction worker said he also saw people on the roof with their hands up, letting police know they were unarmed. Phister says the area where the shooting occurred was at garage doors at the corner of 17th and Utah, a part of the building for employees only.

Victims were taken to the Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, spokesman Brent Andrew said. "Go!'" said Jessica Franklin, 30, who was riding the bus to work when it made a regular stop in front of the UPS facility.

The deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history occurred in June 2016 when a gunman claiming allegiance to the Islamic State militant group killed 49 people at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida. Police have lifted the shelter in place order.




The building is located in the Potrero Hill, which is about 2 ½ miles from downtown San Francisco.

The shooting Wednesday led to a massive police response and a shelter-in-place warning for the surrounding area.

San Francisco police are inside the UPS warehouse searching for additional victims and witnesses.
