Police say a man who began firing a gun in a Phoenix strip club, killing two people, had a 'personal agenda' but isn't giving further details about his motive. Police say 28-year-old Gavin MacFarlane of Scottsdale shot four people at the Great Alaskan Bush Company shortly before midnight Sunday before he ran out of ammunition and was tackled.

Troy Cooley, a security guard at the west Phoenix club, was shot and killed. A club patron, Antonio Garcia also died. A 22-year-old man and a 20-year-old topless dancer were wounded.

Police Sgt. Trent Crump says MacFarlane told detectives that he had a "personal agenda" but did not immediately provide further details.

Witnesses reported that MacFarlane had been inside the bar, went outside to the parking lot, then came back and started shooting.
