ORIGINAL STORY:

Multiple people have been injured in a shooting near a UPS facility in San Francisco on Wednesday morning, according to media reports. The San Francisco Police Department say this is still ongoing. Police are asking people to stay away from the area and advising them to shelter in place. Sources told ABC7 News (KGO) that three people were transported to a hospital. 

The Bay Area shooting came just hours after a gunman opened fire on a group of congressmen in Virginia, injuring a representative from Louisiana.

The SFPD is asking people to avoid the area.

Witnesses took photos of workers who waited on the roof for police to rescue them.

Robert Kim, owner of the Action Auto Care, located a block from the UPS facility, told the San Francisco Examiner that he heard six to eight gunshots at around 9 a.m. PT. "They were shooting really fast, and then next thing I know a mob of UPS drivers are running down 16th Street going east," Kim said.

According to the San Francisco Examiner, two unnamed UPS employees told the paper they saw the shooter in the building.

There is a growing police presence at the UPS facility.
