    Authorities say two people are dead in apparent murder-suicide following a daylong standoff in a rural Massachusetts town.

    State police say the standoff in Montgomery started on Monday morning when a man called police to say he had committed a crime. Police say they believed the man was armed.

    Police responded to a home and started negotiations, shutting off a road near the home.

    The scene was cleared at about 5:30 p.m. Monday.

    No information about the two people found dead in the home has been released. A spokesman for the Hampden district attorney's office says more details will be released Tuesday.

    Montgomery is a town of fewer than 1,000 residents about 15 miles west of Springfield.
