ST. LOUIS (KSDK) -- Four people are dead following a murder-suicide inside a Cherokee Street business, with witnesses saying they heard multiple gunshots.

The incident happened around 1:45 p.m. in the 2700 block of Cherokee Street, near the Cherokee Place Business Incubator, a home healthcare business.

St. Louis Police Captain Michael Sack said the victims were two women and two men, all in their early 40s to mid-50s.  Three of the victims were employees, the fourth the business owner.  It is unclear if the shooter was an employee or the owner.

Police say the shooter got into an argument with the three victims prior to opening fire.

One witness was inside the building and called 911 when they heard gunshots.

The weapon, a semi-automatic handgun, was recovered at the scene, Sack said.

The building is a former movie theater that houses between five and 10 small enterprises.
