A workplace shooting in Minneapolis on Thuesday has left at least two people dead and four others wounded, police said.

The shooting at Accent Signage Systems, on the city's north side, resulted in "a couple of fatalities" and at least four people being taken to hospitals, Minneapolis police spokesman Steve McCarty said. He said police are treating it as an active crime scene.

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.

Dozens of squad cars and police vehicles have surrounded the business in the Bryn Mawr neighborhood. Traffic was stopped on a nearby bridge along Penn Avenue, where law enforcement officers had rifles drawn and pointed at a park below. People from the neighborhood milled around but deputies kept them back.

Accent Signage Systems' website says the company makes interior signage and listed its founder as Reuven Rahamim. A phone message left at the business and at a residential listing for Rahamim was not immediately returned.

"Very sad situation in Bryn Mawr," Mayor R.T. Rybak tweeted. "Please stay away and let the police do their work."

Hennepin County sheriff's spokeswoman Lisa Kiava said earlier that deputies had been called to the shooting Thursday afternoon, though she didn't have further information.
