ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis police say four people are confirmed dead in a murder-suicide shooting south of downtown.

On its Twitter account, police confirmed the dead are two males and two females in a business at a shooting about five minutes south of downtown. Police said the dead included the shooter and three victims.

St. Louis police did not immediately return multiple calls seeking comment. A single ambulance was parked outside the building as hundreds of people were gathered about a half-block away to see what was going on.

The business is in a neighborhood where many Hispanics have relocated in recent years. The street is lined with antique shops, kitsch stores and other shops.
