Two people are dead and a third is injured after an early morning shooting at a business in the town of Louisburg, northeast of Raleigh, police said.

The shooting was apparently part of a domestic dispute.

Louisburg police chief Rick Lassiter told WRAL-TV that a man and a woman are dead, and the man appears to have been the shooter. Another woman was shot in the hip, but her injury was not considered life-threatening.

The Tuesday morning incident at Phelps Temporary Staffing Service happened around 8:45 a.m., Lassiter said.

Louisburg is a town of about 3,000 people, about 30 miles northeast of Raleigh.
