Police say two people were fatally shot at a manufacturing plant in Cleveland, and a suspect is in custody.

Police spokesman Sammy Morris says the suspect was arrested Friday afternoon a few blocks from the ParkOhio Products Inc. plant. He says a female was found dead in a vehicle outside the plant and a male was killed inside the building.

The site is a few miles southwest of downtown and sits between a rail line and scrap yard.

ParkOhio's website says it manufactures rubber, silicone and plastic components for automotive, medical, electronic and other industries. Messages seeking comment were left at the plant and for its operator, Park-Ohio Holdings Corp.

Coroner's spokesman Powell Caesar says autopsies will likely be conducted Saturday.
