(RNN) - A gunman and two other people are dead following a shooting at a mechanic shop in southwest Houston, police say. 

The Friday afternoon shooting was carried out by a former shop employee who killed two workers and then took his own life outside the business, police said. 

Houston Executive Assistant Chief Troy Finner said that other employees and customers were in the business at the time of the gunfire.  

The shooting comes a day after a teen was killed and two others were wounded at what is being described as an ambush-style shooting in Houston. The youngest was shot in the head and died at the hospital, KTRK reported.

The other two victims are expected to survive. At least 50 bullets were fired, the report said.
