DETROIT (AP) -- Detroit police say gunfire broke out at a barbershop known for gambling activity, leaving at least two people dead.

Police say the shootings happened Wednesday evening at Rockies barbershop. Spokeswoman Kelly Miner says nine people were shot and two of them are confirmed dead.

Police had initially said three people were dead, but later revised that number.

It's not clear how many people may have opened fire.

Police Chief James Craig told reporters that "suspects engaged a couple of victims" and that "several shots were fired." He wasn't sure if any victims fired back.

The barbershop is in a strip mall along a major road on Detroit's east side.

Craig says the barbershop is a known gambling site but doesn't know if the shooting was gambling-related.
