Police had few details on Lam. UPS CEO David Abney said the company was investigating the circumstances that led up to the shooting. If convicted, he could face up to 15 years in prison. The city's medical examiner released the three victims' names later that night.

The others are people who were already facing charges. They told her to run because there had been a shooting, she told CNN, explaining she ran about a block with the workers.

On Wednesday, a gun-wielding UPS employee opened fire in one of the company's sorting hubs in San Francisco, killing three and injuring two more before taking his own life. "Go!", said Jessica Franklin, 30, who was on her way to work when the bus made a regular stop in front of the UPS building.

"They were screaming Go! Go!" Two other UPS employees were wounded, but have been released from the hospital, Cilia said. "As they got on the bus, they were all ducking".

San Francisco police have identified the three victims who were killed in Wednesday's San Francisco UPS shooting.

The group, led by a notorious Tuareg commander, was formed earlier in 2017 following a merger of local groups. In recent years, the extremists have become even more brazen, attacking sites frequented by Westerners.

A UPS driver said a gunman opened fire as drivers and managers were assembling for a morning meeting in San Francisco and that he saw a co-worker get shot.

When the police initially responded to the United Parcel Service facility in San Francisco, Chaplin said they did not know if the suspect was an actual employee there, or if was somebody dressed up like an employee, possibly committing an act of terror. "It was like tat, tat, tat, tat, tat, tat, tat". At 11 a.m. another police officer on the scene said the shooter was no longer considered active.

The other two victims were transported to the hospital, but their conditions are unknown.

Officers found two victims outside and others inside and pulled the wounded to safety as they confronted the gunman, who was armed with an "assault pistol", Chaplin said.

Lam filed a grievance in March complaining of too much overtime and requesting that the package delivery company relieve him of working extra hours going forward, said Joseph Cilia, an official with a Teamsters Union local that represents UPS workers in San Francisco.

"Thankfully, at the end of this process, the Senate will finally have a chance to turn the page on this failed law". McConnell said last week that "nobody is hiding the ball here" and that people are "free to ask anybody anything".

When notified of the incident, San Francisco Police (SFPD) issued a "shelter in place" alert to the neighborhood and quickly arrived in full force, with dozens of police cars, armored vehicles, sheriff's cars and fire department vehicles surrounding the building.

"We are always saddened by the loss of life to gun violence", San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee said on Twitter.

Chaplin said there was no immediate confirmation that the gunman was a UPS employee.

Lam was reportedly wearing a UPS uniform when he began shooting.

As the horrific scene unfolded at the UPS building, several people believed to be UPS employees stood on the rooftop parking area at the building with their hands raised, apparently to indicate they were unarmed and needed assistance.
