A gunman killed two people Tuesday evening at a Ford dealership south of San Jose, California, police said.

When officers arrived on the scene in Morgan Hill around 6 p.m., they found a man on the ground outside with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound and a handgun by his side, police said.

Two employees were found inside the dealership suffering from gunshot wounds. They were pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

The building has since been cleared and secured.

“There is no threat to the public,” police said, adding the department will be conducting a “thorough and in-depth investigation and will be on scene for some time.”

The Morgan Hill Police Department is working with the Sheriff’s Department, California Highway Patrol, Cal Fire Police and Morgan Hill Fire on the scene.

“The City of Morgan Hill and the Morgan Hill Police Department offer our sincere condolences to the families of the victims in this tragic incident,” police said.

Morgan Hill is about 25 miles from San Jose.
