ST. LOUIS (AP) — Police say a man with an assault rifle walked into a St. Louis business and shot at least three people. Their conditions were not immediately known.

The shooting occurred around 6:30 a.m. Thursday. Police believed the gunman was still in the building nearly an hour-and-a-half later.

Police did not give the name of the business but said it was a large firm with numerous employees. STLToday.com, the Web site for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, says the business is ABB Power.

The Post-Dispatch reports that employees ran to the rooftop to escape the gunfire. The Web site says dispatchers described the gunman as wearing a tan coat and carrying a semiautomatic weapon.
