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 that two men and two women were dead in the shooting at a business about five minutes south of downtown. Police said the dead included the shooter and three victims.

Additional details were not immediately available. Police did not return multiple calls seeking comment.

A single ambulance was parked along the street where the shooting happened as hundreds of people were gathered about a half-block away to see what was going on.

The street is lined with antique shops, kitsch stores and other shops.
