SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a shooting inside a Southern California clothing store has left a man and a woman dead.

Orange County Sheriff’s Lt. Jeff Hallock says investigators believe the shooting inside the Bliss Boutique in downtown San Clemente Saturday afternoon was a murder-suicide.

Investigators were working to identify the dead and determine their relationship to one another.

A call to the store went unanswered.

The store is located on a busy main street in the beach town. The Orange County Register reports (https://bit.ly/1FNGGuI) that after shots rang out, police swarmed the area and deployed a SWAT team because they initially thought someone might have been held captive. Deputies shouted at passersby to take cover.
