A domestic dispute spurred the shooting deaths of five people at a Pennsylvania car wash, family sources said.

But state police say they have not yet confirmed that or a motive for the shootings that occurred early on Sunday in the Melcroft community of Saltlick Township, about 55 miles south east of Pittsburgh. WPXI-TV reports they spoke with family members.

The victims were identified only as three men and two women in their 20s and 30s. Four of the victims were pronounced dead at the scene. Another died at a hospital.
