1 dead, 2 injured in shooting at business in western Sydney


SYDNEY (AP) — One person was killed and two others injured in a shooting at a business in western Sydney, police said Monday.

New South Wales police said in a statement that they found three people suffering gunshot wounds after responding to reports of a shooting at the sign-making business on Monday morning. One man died at the scene, and two other men were taken to a hospital for treatment. Their conditions weren’t known.

Heavily armed police surrounded the business in an industrial area of Ingleburn, a suburb 40 kilometers (25 miles) west of Sydney. Staffers at nearby businesses were told to stay inside and roads were blocked off in the area.

Police did not release any other details, including whether they believe the shooter was still inside the building or if they believed anyone else was inside the building.
