Louisa County sheriff's department officer Donnie Lowe said the gunman apparently began shooting over a dispute about property and belongings outside the town of Louisa.

Two men were shot dead and four people were wounded, one of whom has life-threatening injuries.

The gunman and his pitt bull dog were then killed in a shoot-out with police, Mr Lowe said, adding that the man had set his dog on officers.
