(AP) A shooting Thursday morning inside a central Pennsylvania supermarket left two people dead and may have been a murder-suicide, state police said.

Someone called 911 to report a shooting inside County Market in Decatur Township around 10 a.m., and police found two people dead when they arrived, Trooper Matthew Reifer said. Police suspect it was a murder-suicide, but the matter was under investigation, he said.

State police spokewoman Maria Finn said the shooting was not random, and the two people were believed to be related. Their identities had been established but wouldn't be released until their next-of-kin were notified, she said.

Emergency dispatchers said the scene was secure.

No one answered the phone at the store late Thursday morning, and messages were not immediately returned by the Clearfield County coroner and district attorney.

A manager at another store in the same shopping complex said squad cars had filled the parking lot and that her store was on lockdown. Brittany Thompson, a manager at the Peebles, said a police officer had come in to tell staff and shoppers that several people had been shot at the Country Market.

"Some of the customers in here were shook up," she said.
