The caller, a woman, reported that a man live-streamed himself carrying a gun inside of an apartment with two people lying on the floor not moving, police said.
After learning the man had barricaded himself inside of the apartment, officers called in SWAT and negotiators to assist with apprehending him, police said. Shortly after 8:30 a.m., officers entered the apartment and arrested the man after a brief struggle.
“Very saddened that two women had to lose their life over something that probably wasn’t that big of a deal,” said Angelica Fowler, a resident in the area.
Fowler lives just two blocks away. She has a friend who lives in the apartments and rushed over after hearing about the crime on social media.
“She hasn’t answered her phone. That’s why I came down here to check and see if she was ok,” Fowler said.READ MORE: Gov. Newsom, Lawmakers Reach Deal To Get California Children Back In Classrooms
