A deadly shooting occurred at a gun shop in the New Orleans metro area, "multiple" people are dead and some innocent bystanders wounded as a result of the incident, local news channel WDSU reported Saturday.

"A customer who was inside the building at the time of the shooting, and two people who arrived later and identified themselves as relatives of the victims, said the shooting started when two adult brothers arrived at the business. The two transported victims are in stable condition", the Saturday statement says.

Armed bystanders helped subdue the gunman at the scene just west of New Orleans, Fox News reported.

While the events of the shooting remain under investigation, police said it appears that a suspect shot and killed two people inside the shooting range before being confronted and shot by multiple others outside.

Police said that the suspect was one of the people found dead on the scene.
