A fifth victim, injured, was also hospitalized.
Police have not released any details about the victims of the tragedy.
The shooting was reported around 5:30 p.m. local time on the upper floor of a small office building.

This shooting comes on the heels of two recent killings that have plunged the United States into mourning and reignited the debate over the proliferation of firearms in the country.
On March 22, a gunman killed ten people at a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado, less than a week after a man shot eight people at an Asian massage parlor in Atlanta, Georgia.
