TAMARAC, Fla. - Two people were found dead inside a home Thursday afternoon after the Broward Sheriff's Office SWAT team and other deputies were called there in reference to 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. 

BSO spokeswoman Joy Oglesby said deputies tried to make contact with the barricaded suspect.

"They were unsuccessful," she said.

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. 

Oscar Perez said he was watching from his house.

"(They) threw some concussion grenades, blew out the windows," Perez said.

Oglesby said a death investigation is underway.

"No one from BSO fired their guns," she said.
