Approximate location of shooting shown in red.

Downey police are investigating a shooting at a business in an industrial neighborhood Wednesday morning.

Authorities did not provide many details, noting that it remains an "active scene." KABC 7 reported that four people were shot. NBC 4 is reporting that there may be three people fatally wounded.

Dean Wright, owner of House of Wright next door, said many police are gathered outside the business, United States Fire Protection Services.

He did not hear gunfire, but was told that a woman was fatally wounded and another was injured.

“It’s just unbelieveable," Wright said. "It’s just horrible.”
