Gunman escapes after 2 neighbors are shot 

A gunman thought to be barricaded inside a Long Beach apartment after shooting two neighbors has managed to escape.

A police SWAT team surrounded the apartment building and evacuated nearby units after a man and woman were shot early Friday.

It was believed the gunman was holed up inside one of the apartments.

But KTTV-TV says the standoff ended hours later when police stormed the apartment and there was nobody there.

Investigators say the two victims and the suspect are neighbors involved in an ongoing dispute. There are no details.
