At least four people were shot dead after a lone gunman entered a United Parcel Service facility in San Francisco and opened fire on June 14.
According to NBC Bay Area, a UPS driver identified as Jimmy Lam fired a gun at co-workers before turning it on himself and committing suicide. Lam was one of the four people that were found dead at the UPS warehouse, company spokesman Steve Gaut said to the news outlet.
Police continued a search of the building to ensure there were no other accomplices before giving the all clear.
A source indicated to the ABC 7 that Lam was a “disgruntled employee” that entered the building during a morning meeting and started shooting.
Authorities conducted a search of the building at around 10:15 a.m. and told those inside the building and in the area to remain calm and shelter in place.
The UPS facility is located on 17th Street and San Bruno Avenue in San Francisco, about 3 miles away from the downtown area.
UPS released a statement shortly after the matter at its San Francisco location confirming that a shooting had occurred.
UPS confirms there was an incident involving employees within the company’s facility in San Francisco earlier this morning. 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.
One witness that worked nearby, David Phister, told ABC 7 that he heard at least four shots fired at around 9 a.m. which prompted him to find out what the sound was. When Phister ran to the window, he said that he heard about four more shot and saw people fleeing the UPS building.
Auto shop owner Robert Kim, who works one block away, said that he heard at least five gunshots and then suddenly saw UPS drivers running down the street screaming “shooter,” he told KKTV 11 News.
