VIDEO: CA Police Captain, City Clerk Found Dead Inside Home After Hourslong Barricade

A police captain and a city clerk were found dead following a standoff that lasted nearly eight hours at an apartment in Seal Beach, CA, reports KABC.

Officers responded to a call of shots fired. A woman called police for help from an apartment in that area around 7:20 p.m., but the line was disconnected and no further calls were made, police said.

A SWAT team surrounded the complex and local residents were asked to stay in their homes until the standoff situation was resolved.

At about 2 a.m. Monday, officers entered the apartment unit and found the bodies of Rick Moore, 49, and Amanda Jensen, 37, according to a Seal Beach Police Department press release. Both of them suffered apparent gunshot wounds.

Officials said Jensen worked as the city clerk for the city of Westminster. Capt. Moore served as a public information officer in Los Alamitos. They were in an on-again, off-again relationship that neighbors said was full of arguments.

SWAT repeatedly tried to make contact with the apartment after they moved in. They deployed a robot after failing to reach the couple inside.

Seal Beach police said the investigation was ongoing.
