At least one dead, multiple injured in shooting at SF UPS Center

Two other UPS employees were wounded in the shooting that prompted a widespread police response in an industrial neighborhood, Assistant Police Chief Toney Chaplin said.

The residence at 335 4th Ave.is listed under Jimmy Lam, the UPS employee who is alleged to have fatally shot three of his co-workers, but police would not confirm that Lam lived at the residence.

"The officers did what they were trained to do and that is when we have an active shooter we engage the active shooter to stop the shooting, and the officers did that", Chaplin said.

Gaut said the facility in question is "an area package sorting hub and package delivery center" at which 850 people are employed.

The shooter and the victims were all drivers, said Steve Gaut, head of investor relations at UPS.

The suspect and victims were taken to San Francisco General Hospital.
