A fundraising website has been set up to help pay for the funeral services of one of the three UPS employees fatally shot by another employee Wednesday at the company’s Potrero Hill facility.
Benson Louie, 50, for whom the GoFundMe page was created, was shot and killed by his colleague Jimmy Lam, who also killed Mike Lefiti, 46, and Wayne Chan, 50, according to authorities. Police said that Lam, 38, then turned the gun on himself.
The shooting began around 9 a.m. Wednesday at 320 San Bruno Ave. and sent two other UPS employees to the hospital.
All the dead were San francisco residents except for Lefiti, who lived in Hercules.
“This fund has been established to honor our dear friend, Benson Louie, a victim of the senseless UPS shooting in San Francisco on June 14th,” reads the GoFundMe page. “Benson was a devoted son, loving husband, proud father, selfless friend and a dedicated volleyball coach and mentor. He was also a hardworking UPS employee for 17 years and was greatly appreciated by all of his customers.”
“Donations will assist with the memorial service and all other expenses that the family will incur. No donation is too small. Please share and help spread the word to assist his family during this difficult time. Thank you.”
As of Friday afternoon the fund had raised more than $9,000.
