LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Little Rock police say two people have been found dead after law enforcement surrounded a home for several hours in a reported hostage situation.

A police report says officers were called to a home around 11 a.m. Sunday, and determined 41-year-old Tyron Humphrey was holding 46-year-old Tracie White hostage. Lt. Steve McClanahan says police treated the standoff as a hostage situation after a woman reported to authorities that she had received a text message saying another woman was being held against her will inside the home.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (https://bit.ly/2eOtBsy ) reports that after trying to contact the occupants of the home with a loudspeaker, police eventually forced their way inside. Police chief Kenton Buckner says the man and woman were found fatally shot in the attic.

Police say they believe Humphrey shot White before shooting himself.
