Shooter Among ‘Several’ Dead at Minneapolis Company, Police Say

Joseph Devenney/Getty Images(MINNEAPOLIS) -- A deadly shooting at a sign company late Thursday afternoon in Minneapolis, Minn., left several people dead, including the shooter, law enforcement officials say.

Authorities say the shooting occurred around 4:30 p.m. at Accent Signage Systems in the Bryn Mawr neighborhood of Minneapolis, ABC News affiliate KSTP-TV reports.

The shooter, who died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, was found inside the building, police say, but they wouldn't give any other details about the gunman.

Police also refused to provide specifics about how many victims were killed in Thursday's shooting.  At an evening news conference, according to KSTP,  Minneapolis Police Deputy Chief Kris Arneson would only say, "We do have several victims inside that are dead."

KSTP also reports three people were transported to Hennepin County Medical Center with gunshot wounds and are listed in critical condition.
