Gunman ID’d in San Francisco UPS Shooting

Gunman ID’d in San Francisco UPS Shooting

Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital received the victims, spokesman Brent Andrew said, but he did not know exactly how many people.

Officials say 38-year-old Jimmy Lam shot and killed three fellow UPS drivers Wednesday before fatally shooting himself in the head in front of officers. San Francisco police declined to comment about their investigation on Thursday.

San Francisco police were digging into the past of a United Parcel Service employee as they tried to figure out why he allegedly killed three co-workers at a company distribution center before shooting himself to death yesterday, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.

Cilia said Lam first shot Benson and Wayne inside the meeting room before chasing Lefiti outside and shooting him as well. Big Mike Lefiti’s regular route was in Diamond Heights, and as CBS 5 reports, the Safeway almost sold out of flowers Wednesday as the community created a makeshift memorial for the man outside the store, describing him as a “gentle giant with a big smile”.

Vu said that was several years ago and he didn’t think about it until a few weeks ago when Lam gave him a lackluster response to a casual question about how he was doing. “Jimmy wasn’t a big complainer”.

“I’m a little creeped out”, said Jennifer Plog, who lives next door to Lam’s home and said he had appeared harmless.

Two guns were recovered from the facility, said Chaplin. “Several of them said it was a driver they worked with who had a gun and opened fire”. “As they got on the bus, they were all ducking”.

Police confirmed the shooting at the facility in the Potrero Hill neighborhood, about 2 ½ miles from downtown San Francisco but didn’t release further information.

Auto shop owner Robert Kim said he saw “a mob of UPS drivers” running down the street screaming “Shooter!“.

Police seem to be concentrated around the UPS San Francisco Customer Center, a couple of blocks east of Franklin Square.

The person was not authorized to discuss the case publicly and spoke on the condition of anonymity. A UPS employee opened fire at one of the company’s p.

Family members have identified one of the victims killed Wednesday morning during a shooting at a UPS facility in San Francisco as 46-year-old Mike Lefiti, a father of five. No shots were fired by responding officers.

Neighbors said they heard up to eight rapid gunshots.

“I couldn’t believe it”, he said.

Miggins said he saw Lefiti, known as “Big Mike”, as he arrived for work just before 9 a.m., a few minutes before the shooting started. “He was a joyful man”. “We were like his 18 other sons and he always loved to see us on weekends and in the summers”, Ly said. He also posted photos of his UPS truck and an award for 15 years of service to the company in 2015.

“He was a piece of sunshine”, said Susan Wasserman, who lives on Lefiti’s route. “It was like tat, tat, tat, tat, tat, tat, tat”.

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.

UPS offered grief counseling to employees and said the company was working to help everyone heal while also trying to understand what led up to the tragedy.

UPS driver Marvin Calderon told KNTV that he recognized the gunman as a fellow employee but did not know him personally.

Local media quoted witnesses within the warehouse at the time of the incident as saying that the gunman went in through the front entrance and started shooting, without saying anything – once at the back of a victim and then at the heads of some others.

Deng watched from his window in the Potrero Hill section of San Francisco as workers fled the building. People said prayers and signed a poster honoring their three longtime colleagues.

Police returned control of the building to UPS on Wednesday night.
