A gunman shot and killed three people at a United Parcel Service facility in San Francisco on Wednesday morning before fatally shooting himself in front of police officers.

Assistant Police Chief Toney Chaplin said that in addition to the shooting victims, five others suffered various injuries, a lot of them occurring during the rush to escape.

"The suspect put the gun to his head and discharged the weapon", Mr Chaplin said.

The shooter opened fire at the UPS building at 17th and Utah Streets at around 8:55 a.m. Chaplin said he could not confirm that all three fatalities were UPS workers because there were other people in the building at the time of the incident.

KTVU asked a UPS employee, who happened to be on the streets of San Francisco for his normal route, if he knew Lam.

UPS workers gather outside a UPS package delivery warehouse where a shooting took place Wednesday, June 14, 2017, in San Francisco.

Chaplin said police have not determined a motive and were interviewing families of victims and witnesses to piece together what led the gunman to act.

Steve Gaut, a UPS spokesman said the shooter was a driver and in uniform.

The San Francisco Fire Department reported at least 3 victims were taken to the hospital, according to KCBS.

UPS spokesman Kyle Peterson released a statement saying there had been an incident inside the company's San Francisco facility.

Lam walked up and shot 50-year-old fellow driver Benson Louie during a morning meeting, Cilia said, relating witness accounts of how the Bay Area bloodbath unfolded.

Joseph Cilia, with a local Teamsters union that represents UPS workers in San Francisco, told the AP that Lam filed the complaint in March.

"When we were immediately outside the facility entrance, I saw a tall man that looked to be directing people out and away from the building", she said.
