A gunman opened fire at a North Carolina temp agency Tuesday, killing one woman and injuring another before committing suicide, authorities said.

The shooting appears to be part of a domestic dispute, said Louisburg Police Chief Rick Lassiter.

The man opened fire after 8 a.m. at Phelps Temporary Staffing Service in Louisburg, a town of about 3,000 people an hour northeast of Raleigh, police said. The woman who was killed was an employee, Lassiter said.

Another woman suffered a gunshot wound to the hip, but her injury was not considered life-threatening.
