One dead following business park shooting in Australia

One man has been killed and two injured in a shooting at a business in western Sydney.

New South Wales police said they found three men with gunshot wounds after responding to reports of a shooting at a sign-making business.

One 43-year-old man died at the scene, and two other men were taken to hospital for treatment.

Heavily armed police surrounded the business in an industrial area of Ingleburn, 25 miles south west of Sydney city centre. Staff at nearby businesses were told to stay inside and roads were blocked off in the area.

Detective Inspector Mark Brett said: "There's tactical operations unit negotiators on the scene and the operation is continuing. It's a delicate stage and I really can't give you much more information than that."

One of the shooting victims was undergoing surgery, while the other had superficial wounds to the lower part of his body, Mr Brett said.
