(CNN) — An armed citizen gunned down a shooter at an Oklahoma City restaurant on Thursday, killing him, police said.

“A man walked into the Louie’s restaurant and opened fire with a gun,” police said. “A bystander with a pistol confronted the shooter outside the restaurant and fatally shot him.”

The shooter’s motive is not known and his identity has not been confirmed. Two people were hospitalized. They are expected to survive.

Police detained “a large number of witnesses” and said “there is no indication of terrorism at this point.”

Louie’s Grill & Bar is in the northwestern part of the city.

People are being urged to avoid the area and roads have been shut down.

A family reunification center has been established at the Lighthouse fitness center on W. Hefner Road.
