“It’s fluid right now,” Andrew said. “We’ve accepted some and we’re expecting more.”

A man in a brown UPS uniform who said he had been inside the four-story building when the gunfire broke out around 9 a.m. said at least three people had been shot. He said the shooter had a handgun and that he recognized him as a UPS employee. There was no immediate word on the gunman or whether he had been taken into custody.

Another man in a UPS uniform also said the gunman was a UPS employee.
