Multiple people were shot near a San Francisco UPS facility. The shooting took place around 9 a.m, in the city’s Potero Hill neighborhood.
It appears that police now have the building under control. According to reports, the gunman opened fire on the third floor of the building. KCBS Radio reported that the shooter, a male believed to be a UPS driver, was taken into custody and was being transported to the hospital.
The San Francisco General Hospital was put on alert that there are as many as six expected victims, including the suspect.
Local law enforcement has control of the facility and is conducting an investigation. The company is cooperating with law enforcement.
As a result, five people were shot and two were killed by the active shooter, NBC Bay Area reported.
David Phister says he lives across the street and heard four shots fired at 9 a.m. Phister says the area where the shooting occurred was at garage doors at the corner of 17th and Utah, a part of the building for employees only.
Auto shop owner Robert Kim told KPIX he heard five to eight rapid gunshots, then saw “a mob of UPS drivers” running down the street screaming “Shooter, shooter.”
The San Francisco police are advising all residents to stay put and remain in shelter.
