    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.

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.

    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.
