4 killed, including gunman, in shooting at UPS facility in San Francisco
June 14, 2017
San Francisco police have completed a search of the Potrero Hill UPS facility where a shooting Wednesday morning took the lives of four people, including the apparent gunman.
Five UPS employees were shot in the 8:55 a.m. incident at 320 San Bruno Ave. before the shooter, whose identity has not been officially released, shot himself in the head with an assault pistol in front of arriving police officers, according to Assistant Chief Toney Chaplin.
"This person took their life because the officers confronted him," Chaplin said. "None of our officers fired."
Police said the gun was one of two weapons found at the scene.
UPS officials earlier Wednesday described the incident as involving "six employees" and previous reports indicated the gunman was wearing a UPS uniform. However, Chaplin Wednesday afternoon said investigators had not confirmed that the gunman was a UPS employee.
Three of those shot died of their injuries, while two others are being treated at the hospital.
In addition to the shooting victims, Chaplin said five others suffered various injuries, most of them occurring during the rush to escape.
