Police say three people have been killed and two officers injured in a siege involving a lone gunman in the southern city of Adelaide.

They say a teenager was also seriously injured in the incident that began early on Friday at a house in the suburb of Hectorville.

A police statement says the gunman remains holed up inside a house in the suburb.

One of two officers who responded to an emergency call was shot in the face when the gunman opened fire. The other injured officer received a minor knee injury.

Police say they found the bodies of two men and a woman at the scene.

Police are trying to negotiate with the gunman.
