Multiple people are dead after a gunman opened fire Wednesday morning at a UPS warehouse in San Francisco, according to KPIX-TV.

KPIX reported that “several people were killed” Wednesday, including the gunman, during the incident. The station described the gunman as a UPS employee.

According to KRON-TV, five people were shot before the gunman was killed.

At press time, the exact number of fatalities remains unclear. The San Fransisco Gate reported that at least two people are dead. Fox News reported that as many as four people are dead.

In a statement, Steve Gaut, a spokesman for UPS, said the company has confirmed that “there was a shooting incident involving four employees within the company’s facility in San Francisco earlier this morning.”

“Local law enforcement are conducting an investigation,” Gaut said. “We cannot provide information as to the identity of persons involved at this time, pending the police investigation. We understand that there are potentially multiple deaths, although some individuals were transported to the hospital and we are unsure of their status at this time.”

“The company is saddened and deeply concerned about affected employees, family members and the community we share,” he said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with all those touched by this incident.”

Gaut said the facility in question is “an area package sorting hub and package delivery center” at which 850 people are employed.

San Francisco Police said on Twitter that the building is now secure:

The shooting took place the same day a gunman attacked Republican lawmakers at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia.
