After shooting incident at the San Francisco UPS distribution center
Police identified the gunman as Jimmy Lam, 38, of San Francisco. Neither police nor the company would confirm that the killer worked for UPS.

The San Francisco Medical Examiner identified the victims as Wayne Chan, 56, and Benson Louie, 50, of San Francisco and Michael Lefiti 46, of Hercules. As part of the investigation, officers raided Lam’s apartment in San Francisco’s Inner Richmond District. A motive in the killings has not been determined. San Francisco authorities say they’re interviewing the families of victims and witnesses.
