Heavily armed police surrounded the business in an industrial area of Ingleburn, a suburb 40 km southwest of Sydney. Staffers at nearby businesses were told to stay inside and roads were blocked off in the area.

"There's tactical operations unit negotiators on the scene and the operation is continuing," said New South Wales police Detective Inspector Mark Brett. "It's a delicate stage and I really can't give you much more information than that."

One of the shooting victims was undergoing surgery, while the other had superficial wounds on the lower part of his body, Brett said.
