Allegheny County police Superintendent Charles Moffatt said the gunman in the Tuesday night shooting had identification but did not say whether they had confirmed his identity.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below. BRIDGEVILLE, Pa. (AP) , An armed man strolled to the back of an exercise class at a health club in suburban Pittsburgh on Tuesday night and then pulled out two guns and started spraying bullets, leaving four people dead, including himself, and injuring at least 10 others, authorities said. A law enforcement official said two women and a man believed to be the shooter died at the scene Tuesday night and a fourth person died on the way to a hospital. The official wasn't authorized to comment on the investigation into the shooting and spoke on condition of anonymity. Allegheny County police Superintendent Charles Moffatt said the shooter did not say anything before unleashing a burst of bullets. "He walked right into the room where the shootings occurred as if he knew exactly where he was going," Moffatt said. Three bodies were removed early Wednesday from the L.A. Fitness Center in Bridgeville, a community of about 5,000 residents not far from downtown Pittsburgh and the Pittsburgh International Airport. A woman with a chest wound died at St. Clair Hospital, where two other female victims were in stable condition, spokesman Rich Sieber said. Five victims arrived in critical condition at UPMC Mercy Hospital, and two women were listed in fair condition at Allegheny General Hospital, hospital officials said. Joann Gazzam, who was taking part in the weekly Latin impact dance exercise class, saw the gunman walk to the back of the room near some weights, set down a bag and fumble with it for a few minutes before coming up with what appeared to be two guns and opening fire, according to her sister, Debi Wozniak, of suburban Dormont. Gazzam told Wozniak that the instructor was among those who appeared to have been shot, and that the gunman had killed himself.
