Five people have been killed in a shooting in the US city of Minneapolis.

The gunman shot four people dead at a sign-making company in the city’s north before turning the weapon on himself.

Another four were wounded, including one critically.

Police were first called to the incident at 4:30 pm (23:30 CET) on Thursday, but no shots were exchanged with the gunman.

He was found dead at the scene hours later.

Officers have not released further details about the killer, including his possible motive or whether he had worked at the company.

The fatal shooting comes one month after a similar incident at New York’s Empire State Building that left two people dead.
