Three killed in US shooting at UPS facility

A man in a United Parcel Service uniform fatally shot two workers today and then killed himself at a UPS facility in Birmingham, Alabama, police said.

The incident occurred at about 9:30 am local time at a UPS facility in the Inglenook section of Birmingham, police said.

Officers found the victims, including one person believed to be the shooter, who had died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Birmingham Police Chief A.C. Roper told reporters.

Police fired no shots, he said.

"When these people came to work today, they had no idea that this would be their last day here on earth," Roper said.

The motive was not immediately known, Roper said, adding that the shooter was wearing a UPS employee uniform.

UPS confirmed the incident and said it was cooperating with police.
