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.
