(CBS/AP) CASSELBERRY, Fla. - Police say a gunman fatally shot three women and injured another at a central Florida hair salon  before leaving the scene and killing himself.

The gunman entered Las Dominicanas M & M Salon in Casselberry shortly after 11 a.m. Thursday, police spokeswoman Sara Brady said. Two women escaped the salon.

A fourth victim is being treated at the hospital, Brady says. Her condition was not immediately released.

Police say the suspected gunman was found dead several miles away at a home on Paradise Lane from a self inflicted gun wound, CBS affiliate WKMG reports. Another person in the home was injured but not shot.

Police have not identified the victims or the gunman. Brady said the shooting appears to be part of a domestic dispute.

A video posted on the salon's website has a women explaining in Spanish the services offered at the salon for men and women.

Casselberry is about 15 miles northeast of Orlando.

In October 2011, police say Scott Dekraai, who they describe as an angry ex-husband, donned a bulletproof vest before killing his ex-wife and six of her fellow stylists and patrons at a Southern California hair salon. He also is accused of killing a man in the parking lot. Dekraai is awaiting trial on murder charges.
