SUNNYVALE, Calif. — Police in the San Francisco Bay Area city of Sunnyvale have shot and killed a man after a nearly two-hour standoff that began when they say he called police to tell them he had killed someone.

The San Jose Mercury News reports that officers also found the body of a woman inside the home where the shooting took place Thursday morning.

Capt. Dave Pitts says the incident occurred after a SWAT team that made numerous attempts to contact the man, approached the home and shot him after he apparently charged at them armed with a gun.

The man died at the scene.

Police have not released the names of the man and the woman or said how they may have known each other.

The incident remains under investigation.
