Two people have been shot to death in a local market and deli in Kansas City, Kansas, and police have arrested the suspect after he barricaded himself inside for two hours.

A brother told The Kansas City Star that one victim of Wednesday afternoon's shooting was business owner Dennis Edwards.

Police said when they responded to reports of gunshots and tried to enter the Edwards Original Corner Market & Deli, the suspect pointed a gun at officers. The officers fired, exited, and a standoff resulted as police negotiated with the suspect.

The suspect was later taken to a hospital with a gunshot wound.

Lisa Green, who worked for Edwards, said two other women were inside and one was shot. Green said she was inside and took cover under a table.
