Long Description:
"The incident happened at 8:55 a.m. during a morning meeting[3] at a packaging and sorting UPS facility at 320 San Bruno Avenue in the Potrero Hill neighborhood of San Francisco. Upon arriving at the facility for work, Jimmy Lam set off the metal detector at the employee entrance, but was allowed to proceed inside the building. At the meeting, Lam singled out specific employees. Lam walked up to Benson Louie and shot him in the head without warning. As the other drivers fled the meeting, Lam shot Wayne Chan in the back. After shooting Louie and Chan, Lam shot and injured Alvin Xiao Chen and Edgar Perez inside the building before pursuing Mike Lefiti out into the street, where Lam killed Lefiti at the corner of 17th and San Bruno."

According to witnesses, UPS employees fled east from the building along 16th and 17th streets, and a group of approximately fifteen flagged down the passing 22-Fillmore bus to escape.[4] The police were called at 8:56 a.m., and after arriving at the site, they were told that Lam was an active shooter. After entering the building and conducting a brief search, the police found Lam near the bodies of Louie and Chan, holding the weapon to his head. Police officers ordered him to put the gun down, but Lam shot and killed himself."
