Three die in New Mexico office shooting

A 37-year-old gunman has killed two people before killing himself at an office building in Albuquerque, in the US state of New Mexico, police say.

Another four people were injured at the offices of technology manufacturer Emcore, in what local police said was a domestic violence-related incident.

Police at first said the man had killed five others but later revised the toll.

Officials said the gunman, who opened fire just before 0930 local time (1530 GMT), was a former Emcore employee.

His ex-wife is also believed to work for the company.

It is unclear whether she was killed or injured in the incident.

People living and working in the area were warned by police to stay indoors for several hours.
