Two Found Dead In Seal Beach Apartment After Hours Long Standoff
Police found two bodies in a Seal Beach apartment building early Monday morning after an hours long SWAT stand-off that began Sunday evening.
Police received a 911 call around 7:20 p.m. Sunday evening from a woman seeking help from inside an apartment building on the 100 block of Seventh Street. The call was disconnected, according to City News Service, and police started receiving reports of gunshots in the area not long after.
Police found the bodies a little around 2 a.m., according to KTLA. One was a male and the other's gender was not reported. Before the discovery, SWAT had helicopters patrolling the neighborhood and urging residents to stay inside their homes, according to NBC.
Witnesses said the man was an off-duty police officer, according to the O.C. Register. Police have yet to confirm the events prior to the shooting, or if either of the bodies belonged to the shooter or shooters.
The Seal Beach Police Department didn't respond to a request for comment before time of publication.
