Five people were killed and a sixth person wounded after what is being called a shooting rampage near Pittsburgh, according to USA Today.

Ed Bukovac, who owns the vehicle wash, told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that a neighbor called him around 4 a.m. Sunday and said something was wrong at his business.

The identity of the victims, three men and two women, were not immediately available, police said.

He said two of the victims were found inside a pickup truck and two others were found near the parking lot. Another person was injured.

A motive has not been released as the investigation continues.

"We arrived on scene and State Police discovered that there were four fatalities from gunshots", Uniontown State Police Trooper Robert Broadwater said.

Police say it happened around 3 a.m.in Melcroft, southeast of Pittsburgh. Family members of the victims told WPXI-TV that the shooting was the result of a domestic dispute.

All were in their 20s to early 30s. The facts were still being sorted out, but police said the suspected shooter, 28-yr-old Timothy O'Brien Smith, was gravely injured and not expected to survive.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports a man who lives near the scene said he heard about 30 gunshots over a span of several minutes. Two were pickup trucks - including the one that two of the victims were found in - and the other was a sedan.

Authorities were trying to determine if the shooter was among those found at the scene.

The victims were identified only as three men and two women.
