Shooting at San Francisco UPS centre, police say

And the driver did.

A UPS statement said the shooter and all the victims were employees.

The suspect shot himself when confronted by police and later died in hospital, NBC7 and ABC7 reported.

Two other employees were injured in the shooting, Peterson says. "Any shooting is one shooting too many", San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee said on Twitter. Chaplin said police are working with other city agencies to set up reunification sites for family and friends.

This item has been corrected to show that Toney Chaplin is San Francisco assistant police chief. He said another group of about 10 people gathered on the roof and held up their hands waving for help.

Officers arrived to learn the suspect was still inside the building, Chaplin said.

A woman named Michelle, who did not want to provide her last name, was walking to work across the street from a UPS facility when she saw several UPS employees running down the street.

Auto shop owner Robert Kim said he heard about five to eight rapid gunshots.

Deng says he "saw police officers go up from the ramp and then storm the buildings".

No one immediately had details on the conditions of those injured.

Police say that four people have been killed, including the gunman, after a shooting at a UPS facility in San Francisco.

UPS spokesman Steve Gaut said Wednesday that he believed the shooter "turned the gun on himself" but did not have additional information.

A San Francisco hospital has received multiple victims from a shooting at a sprawling UPS warehouse and customer service center.

He declined to release any information on the number of causalities or say it was an active shooting incident. They walked away calmly with emergency vehicles nearby.

Police sealed off streets in the area after the shooting, which took place around 9 a.m. local time.

- San Francisco Police (@SFPD) June 14, 2017#SFPD is conducting a building search. "We can not provide information as to the identity of persons involved at this time, pending the police investigation", the statement said.

They are asking people in the area to shelter in place until further notice.
