Sydney : A man who police say fatally shot one person and wounded two others inside a western Sydney business was found dead inside the building after a six-hour standoff today, reports AP.

Heavily armed police moved into the sign-making business after spending hours positioned around the factory in an industrial area of Ingleburn, a suburb 40 km southwest of Sydney.

Once inside, they found a 33-year-old man dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, said New South Wales police Detective Inspector Mark Brett.

Police also found three other people hiding inside the building and escorted them outside, Brett said. It was not clear whether they had been held inside by the shooter or had been hiding the whole time while they waited for the standoff to end.

Police were called to the business after receiving reports of gunfire. When they arrived, they found three men suffering gunshot wounds. One 43-year-old man died at the scene, and two others were taken to a hospital for treatment.
