Man, woman found dead inside Tamarac home

A man and a woman were found dead inside a home Thursday afternoon after the Broward Sheriff's Office's SWAT team and other deputies responded to the home in reference to a call about a barricaded suspect.

The incident was reported at 5880 NW 57th Ave. in Tamarac. 

Sky 10 was above the scene shortly after 3 p.m. as authorities had their guns drawn outside the home. 

Local 10 News reporter Christian De La Rosa said the incident appeared to be over by 4:30 p.m. 

Neighbors told De La Rosa that they were told to stay inside their homes while the suspect was barricaded. 

They said they heard several shots before the lockdown was lifted. 

One neighbor said she was on the phone with her husband during the lockdown as he watched the incident unfold across the street through their window.

"I guess he saw the SWAT at the door doing their hand signals, and I guess trying to negotiate with him to come out," she said. "He said he heard -- I guess, we're assuming it was the brother -- trying to coax him to come out, as well."

BSO spokeswoman Joy Oglesby said a death investigation is underway. 

No other details were immediately released.
