(AP) Two are dead following a Tuesday afternoon shooting at a hospital building in Reno. One of the dead is the gunman, according to Reno Police. Two others were also injured.

Reno police say the man entered the Center for Advanced Medicine at Renown Regional Medical Center at about 2:45 p.m. with at least one firearm and began shooting.

Reno police Lt. Tom Robinson says the shooter turned the gun on himself before 3 p.m. KOLO 8 News Now is also reporting that another victim has been found dead.

Robinson says one of the shooting victims is in surgery.

KOLO is also reporting that the East 2nd Street in the area is shut down, but the situation is no longer considered an "active shooter" situation.

Police say the shooter was found dead on the third floor of the medical building at 1500 E. 2nd Street.

The building has been searched from floor to floor and nothing else has been found.
No identities have been released. Police don't know what any motive is.
