GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - Gwinnett County police are investigating two deaths after a SWAT standoff shut down a neighborhood for hours.
 
Neighbors said they were scared when they saw police swarm their street Saturday night. The neighborhood was on lockdown for most of the night.
 
Officers were first called to the house off Annistown Road for a report of domestic violence just after 9 p.m. When they arrived, officers said they heard gunshots coming from inside the house.
 
Police said after looking into the home, they discovered a body and called in SWAT as a precaution.
 
After going into the house, police found two people dead in what they said is a murder-suicide.
 
"You could just see the SWAT team going in and coming out. We heard the fire where they were breaking in. Police told us it's domestic violence,” said neighbor John George.
 
Police have not released the names of the two people killed.
 
Neighbors told Channel 2 the couple had three kids, but didn't think they were at the house.
