Police Respond to Active Shooter in San Francisco: Police

San Francisco police respond to shooting

UPS spokesman Steve Gaut released a statement saying that six employees were involved in a "shooting incident" but that the company can not provide any identifications until the police investigation is complete. Gaut says four people are injured and that he believes the shooter "turned the gun on himself". The next thing he knew, he says, "a mob of UPS drivers" is running down the street screaming "shooter, shooter".

Police had an unidentified person in custody following an apparent workplace shooting at a UPS facility in the city's Potrero Hill neighborhood.

On Wednesday, the San Francisco Police Department issued a warning on Twitter for pedestrians to avoid the area near "17th & Vermont".

[Update: 10:18am] Police are moving from floor to floor inside the UPS building to secure the facility and evacuate employees. Two other employees were shot in the shooting and five were hurt, police say.

One of the victims, a 46-year-old man who drives for UPS, succumbed to his injuries after he was shot multiple times while trying to help others escape.

It came the same day a gunman opened fire on Republican lawmakers at a congressional baseball practice, wounding U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana and several others.

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

He said the four victims were taken to a hospital but didn't know their conditions. Law enforcement is concentrated around the UPS San Francisco Customer Center, a couple of blocks east of Franklin Square.

He declined to release any information on the number of causalities or say it was an active shooting incident.

The multi-story building is clearly visible along highway 101 as drivers go into downtown San Francisco. Please continue to avoid the area and shelter in place until we have further information.
