Two people died, and a third was significantly wounded Monday in a shooting at a youth outreach center in Des Moines, Iowa, police said. Police reacted to a report of a shooting at Starts Right Here, which runs a program for at-risk youths, and found three people wounded, two of them critically.

“Those two people, both students, are dead now at the hospital. The third person, who is an employee of the school, is in serious condition,” said Paul Parizek, a spokesman for the Des Moines police department.

He said he did not know the age of the departed. “I don’t know if they’re adults or teenagers or minor teenagers,” said Parizek. Acting on tips from witnesses, police stopped a car and detained three possible suspects in the shooting as the investigation continued. The shooting came after a massacre Saturday night in southern California in which 11 people were fatally shot at a dance hall by a 72-year-old Asian emigrant who later killed himself as police locked in.
