4 shot dead, 1 wounded at western Pennsylvania car wash

(Reuters) - Four people were killed and one was wounded after a gunman opened fire at a western Pennsylvania car wash early on Sunday, state police said.

According to CBS News, the police initially reported five people were killed but the police said the attacker is on life support at a local hospital.

Shots rang out about 2:40 a.m. at Ed's Car Wash in Melcroft, about 53 miles (85 km) southeast of Pittsburgh, police said.

The shooting at the coin-operated facility was still under investigation, and the motive was unknown, police said.

Pittsburgh television station WPXI reported the dead as three men and two women, but state police declined to confirm that information.

Five people were killed, including a man believed to be the shooter, and one was wounded, police originally said.

"There is no continued threat to the community," a police spokesman said.
