MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A shooter opened fire Thursday at a Minneapolis sign business, leaving at least two people dead and four others wounded, including three critically, police and hospital officials said.

The shooting at Accent Signage Systems, in a largely residential area of the city, resulted in "a couple of fatalities" and at least four people being taken to hospitals, Minneapolis police spokesman Steve McCarty said.

Hennepin County Medical Center was treating three people from the scene, all in critical condition, spokeswoman Christine Hill said. She said the hospital wasn't expecting more patients with critical injuries.

Officers wouldn't release details about the shooter, including if he or she were among the victims. By Thursday evening, officers were slowly walking around the scene without their weapons drawn and interviewing neighbors.
