The Salvation Army, Red Cross and various city agencies are offering support to UPS workers and their families near the scene of a shooting at a UPS facility in Potrero Hill that left four people dead, including the suspect, on Wednesday morning.
John McKnight, director of emergency disaster services at the Salvation Army, said the organization had at least six chaplains, who serve as counselors, aiding family of the UPS workers and workers themselves with mental health services, food, water and compassion.

“The population we work with is people whose lives are constantly riddled with trauma,” McKnight said, who himself was stationed near the shooting.
“But this,” he said, “is unique. It’s unimaginable.”
