A SWAT team surrounded the complex and local residents were asked to stay in their homes until the standoff situation was resolved.
A police SWAT team entered the apartment and discovered two dead people, Seal Beach police Sgt. Michael Henderson told City News Service.
On July 16, 2017 at approximately 7:20 p.m., the Seal Beach Police Department received a phone call from a caller requesting police assistance. The identities of the deceased will not be made public until the next of kin have been notified. The gender specified in the second file was not immediately reported.
Two bloody bodies were found inside a Seal Beach apartment after a desperate woman called police pleading for help and shots were heard being fired, authorities said. Around the time of that call, neighbors reported hearing yelling and gunshots.
No further shots were reported after the initial shots, he said. But a witness heard two explosions and breaking glass after midnight.
Editor's note: the Orange County Coroner released few details, other than that one of the victims was male.
