(TUALATIN, Ore.) - Detectives continue their investigation into the cause of today's shooting at Legacy Metro Lab in Tualatin. At this time we have confirmed two deceased, one of which included the adult male shooter who died from what appears to be a self inflicted gun shot wound. The other deceased was an adult female employee of the business.

There have been two confirmed injured, one of which was a 63-year old male employee of the business and the other a 20-year old female employee of the business. The injured male suffered multiple gun shot wounds and was life flighted to OHSU.

The injured female suffered non-life threatening injuries and was transported by Metro West Ambulance to Legacy Emanual Hospital.

Investigators have determined that at approximately 11:45 a.m., the male shooter entered Legacy Metro Lab armed with a rifle and fired multiple rounds inside the business.

There is information that there was a relationship between the male shooter and the deceased female victim, however the nature of that relationship is still under investigation. The names of the victims are not being released at this time. Detectives are currently working on notifying next of kin.

Following multiple 9-1-1 calls, Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue responded to the scene, bringing over 10 fire/EMS units. TVF&R crews were initially staged at the Tualatin Elementary School, due to the unknown status of the shooter.

Upon confirmation by Tualatin Police that there was no risk to firefighter/paramedics, crews were brought into the scene and provided advanced life support medical care to the adult male and female victims. Lake Oswego Fire Department also responded to the scene. Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue has brought their mobile command center unit to the scene, which is being utilized by Tualatin detectives as they continue their ongoing investigation of this incident.
