ST. PETERSBURG (FOX 13) - Detectives say two people are dead following an hours-long standoff that began around 9 p.m. Wednesday.
Police and SWAT arrived at a home in the 3300 block of 21st Street N to talk with a man inside about a missing persons investigation. The man barricaded himself in, officers say, and refused to talk.
When authorities went inside early Thursday morning, they found two people dead in an apparent murder-suicide.
Police evacuated several nearby homes in the area for several hours as a precaution.
The investigation continues.
