(CNN)A suspect in an overnight shooting at the Mueller Co. facility in Albertville, Alabama, that left two employees dead and two injured has died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said Tuesday.

Albertville Police Chief Jamie Smith said the person believed to be the shooter and their vehicle were found just before 6 a.m. in Guntersville.

The suspect was found deceased from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

"There is no danger to the public," Smith said in the statement.

Smith said an employee began firing a weapon at other employees around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday "for an unknown reason," according to a news release obtained by CNN affiliate WAFF.

Albertville is in north Alabama, around 50 miles south of Huntsville.
