Update – Thursday, June 15, 10 a.m. Central: The Associated Press is reporting the gunman who killed three UPS employees and himself Wednesday in San Francisco was a driver who opened fire on co-workers during a meeting. Jimmy Lam, 38, had reportedly filed a grievance with the company in March complaining of excessive overtime, asking the company to not give him extra hours going forward.
AP reports it appeared Lam specifically targeted three drivers before turning the gun on himself.
