MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Officials say a shooter who opened fired inside a Minneapolis sign company is among ‘several’ people killed in the shooting.

Minneapolis Police Deputy Chief Kris Arneson says she can’t immediately confirm how many people were killed in the shooting Thursday at Accent Signage Systems.

Arneson says the shooter died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

She told an evening news conference outside the company that there are “several victims inside that are dead.” Pressed to say how many, Arneson said police still were investigating and refused.

Police had earlier said at least two people had been killed and four others wounded in the shooting.
