A UPS worker opened opened fire at a San Francisco delivery center Wednesday, killing three co-workers before turing the gun on himself, according to the city’s police department.

Two other people were taken to an area hospital with gunshot wounds and another five sustained less serious injuries as they rushed to escape the scene, an SFPD spokesperson told TheWrap.

So far there is no evidence to suggest the shooting is related to terrorism.

“This is a terrible tragedy,” the SFPD said in a statement. “We recognize the impact this shooting is having on the City and UPS. We are working to establish unification sites for UPS employees and their families.”

Dramatic scenes from the San Francisco shooting played out on social media throughout the six-hour lockdown, as eyewitnesses uploaded pictures and videos in real-time.

One eye-witness tweeted a picture showing several people holding their hands up with the caption: “These employees on the roof were rescued by police.”

In a statement, UPS said that “the company is saddened and deeply concerned about affected employees, family members and the community we share.”

The incident happened just hours after another shooter opened fire on a group of Republican politicians practicing for an upcoming charity baseball game early Wednesday morning, striking House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and several others in Alexandria, Virginia.

The assailant was shot and killed by Capitol Hill police who were on hand as part of Scalise’s security detail.
