Help the AP

The AP is confused.  To quote their story:

WASHINGTON (AP) – Authorities say at least two people have been shot at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington.

D.C. police spokeswoman Traci Hughes says a person walked into the museum with a rifle and shot a guard.

Hughes says the shooter was also shot. Hughes says the victims’ conditions were not known. Both were being taken to a hospital.

U.S. Park Police gave slightly different information, saying three people had been shot.

Can anyone explain why there are three people shot, but only two victims, if the perpetrator was also shot?  The AP seems to have been confused by this riddle.

Edit: And, yes, I accept that there just might be only two people shot, but the AP’s construction is silly.
