KPIX 5 reporter Andria Borba said at least two Homeland Security units were responding. Police radio transmissions describe casualties being taken to local hospitals.
San Francisco General Hospital spokesman Brent Andrew said the hospital received patients from the incident but could not confirm a number. Stanford University hospital says it has received four or five patients from the incident.
Vadim Lavrusik, who was working at that facility, wrote on Twitter shortly before 1 p.m. that he heard shots and saw people running while at his desk before barricading himself inside a room with other coworkers
