SWANSEA, Mass. (AP) — Authorities say two people are dead after a shooting and roughly three-hour standoff in Swansea.

Swansea police responded to reports of shots fired at about 6 p.m. on Sunday.

They found one person dead inside a car.

Witnesses told police that the shooter had run into a nearby house.

Shortly after the person ran into the home, people reported hearing a single gunshot.

Local police with the help of state troopers secured the area, and at about 9 p.m. police entered the home shielded by a robot and found one person dead of an apparent gunshot wound.

No one else was in the home.

No names and no motive were immediately released as the situation remains under investigation.
