The shooter who opened fire Thursday in a Minneapolis sign company was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, the city's deputy police chief told The Associated Press.


Police had previously said at least two people were killed and four were wounded during the afternoon shootings at Accent Signage Systems, the AP had reported.


"We do have several victims inside that are dead," Minneapolis Police Deputy Chief Kris Arneson said during an evening news conference two blocks from the company, according to the AP.


But when pressed to say how many were dead, the wire service said Arneson refused and said police were still investigating.


She also wouldn't release details about the victims, but said the shooter's body was found inside the building, the AP reported.
