Police ordered residents and employees in the city's Portero Hill neighbourhood and surrounding areas to shelter in place as they responded to the shooting.

The UPS spokesman Steve Gaut said that six UPS employees were drawn in a shooting incident but until police investigations company can not provide information related to the employees.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.

Mr Toia said he was able to tell his cousin he loved him.
