A suspect is dead after he opened fire on co-workers at a UPS sorting warehouse in San Francisco. Three of the victims have died, CNN reports. The gunman shot himself as authorities moved in and died later.
The gunman, Jimmy Lam, filed the grievance in March complaining that he was working excessive overtime, Joseph Cilia, an official with a Teamsters Union local that represents UPS workers in San Francisco, told The Associated Press.
Still, Cilia said Lam wasn’t angry, and he could not understand why he would open fire on fellow drivers at a morning meeting. Cilia says witnesses told him Lam appeared to specifically go for the drivers who died, chasing at least one of them out of the building.
