A witness who was inside the building says she believes it was one driver shooting toward other drivers while a morning meeting was happening. And the driver did.

In a statement, UPS said that local law enforcement had control of the facility and that the company was cooperating with the investigation.

The shooter also died in the incident, police confirmed.

He said he ran away as fast as he could.

In 2014, a man shot and killed two of his supervisors before turning the gun on himself at a UPS distribution centre in Birmingham, Alabama.

The shooting occurred at a UPS facility near 17th Street and San Bruno Avenue, ABC San Francisco affiliate KGO reported. Chaplin said that the shooter was armed with an assault pistol and put the weapon to his head and pulled the trigger when police found him.

Three people were injured at the scene; no word yet on their condition. Two others were wounded. "He recognized shooter as fellow employee", San Francisco Chronicle reporter Evan Sernoffsky tweeted.

"Police approached and they were taken to a safe place", he said.

This item has been corrected to show that Toney Chaplin is San Francisco assistant police chief.

But I thought I heard the PA announcer say that it was on Draymond. "I take full responsibility for that". His technicals - the one called and the one that wasn't - overshadowed his shooting and rebounding.

Raymond Deng, 30, a data scientist for a start-up company, said he looked out his apartment window Wednesday to see a group of UPS workers fleeing the building and shouting.

"I saw police officers go up from the ramp and then storm the buildings", he said.

Auto shop owner Robert Kim says he brought cars inside and shut the gate Wednesday. Two other employees were shot in the shooting and five were hurt, police say.

A UPS employee opened fire on colleagues inside a massive distribution center in San Francisco on Thursday morning, police and witnesses said.

KCBS has been told several victims have been taken to San Francisco General for treatment of injuries suffered in the shooting.

He declined to release any information on the number of causalities or say it was an active shooting incident.

It was not immediately clear how many employees were at the facility, but UPS said the warehouse employs 350 people.

Police and city officials urged residents to avoid the area and shelter in place, said Francis Zamora, a spokesman for the City of San Francisco's Department of Emergency Management. "We can not provide information as to the identity of persons involved at this time, pending the police investigation", the statement said.
