Suits filed in deadly UPS rampage in SF

09/12/2017 | FOX KTVU
The families of two men killed during a workplace shooting rampage at a UPS facility in San Francisco filed wrongful-death lawsuits today against the company and a private security firm.

The shooting happened June 14, when UPS employee Jimmy Lam entered the warehouse in the UPS complex in San Francisco's Potrero Hill. He hid a MAC-10 submachine gun and an automatic pistol, as well as a box of bullets as he passed through security.

The lawsuits say that when Lam passed through a security checkpoint staffed by Allied Universal, he set off the metal detector alarm but that security guards did nothing.

Lam then opened fire, fatally shooting Chan and Louie inside the building and injuring several others, according to police. Lefiti was shot and killed outside the building.

The lawsuit accuse the defendants of knowing that security problems existed at the facility, including unauthorized people getting into the building and the presence of guns there.
