Four killed and others injured after San Francisco warehouse shooting

The shooter is thought to be an employee at the delivery company.

Updated at 8pm

FOUR PEOPLE HAVE been killed and multiple people have been injured in a shooting at a UPS warehouse in San Francisco.

Delivery company UPS said that six employees ‘were involved’ in the workplace shooting, and that the shooter was an employee of the company.

NBC News earlier reported that at least five people have been shot and two killed in the incident.

Police in San Francisco have tweeted that they are at the scene of a shooting in the city.

Police had earlier advised people in the area to shelter and remain in place following the incident. That direction has now been lifted.

The company said that it was “saddened and deeply concerned about affected employees, and family members”.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all those touched by this incident.

AP reports that San Francisco hospital has received multiple victims from the shooting, but it was unable to clarify their conditions.

CNN says that a large column of UPS workers were seen being led from the building by armed police.

The building is located in the Potrero Hill, which is about 2 ½ miles from downtown San Francisco.

The facility is an area package sorting hub and package delivery centre.
UPS employs 350 at the facility.
