MOUNT AIRY, N.C. (AP) - Authorities say four men have been shot and killed at a northwestern North Carolina store and that they are looking for a suspect who may be armed with an assault rifle.

Mount Airy Police Chief Dale Watson said at a news conference that the victims were shot Sunday at Woods TV store in the town on the Virginia border. Police say a warrant has been issued for the arrest of Marcos Chavez Gonzalez. He is charged with four counts of murder.

Police say the victims' names are being withheld because their families have not been notified.

Nursing supervisor Sue Coe at Northern Hospital of Surry County confirmed that two people died at the store around 2:30 p.m. She says two who were wounded died at the hospital.
