DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - An overnight SWAT incident has come to an end with two people found dead inside an east Dayton home.
Dayton police were first called to the 800 block of Nordale Avenue around 9:00 Sunday night to check on the welfare of a 38-year-old woman.
A 24-year-old man answered the door and told officers the woman was at a nearby bar. When they were unable to locate the woman, they went back to the house and the man refused to cooperate.
That's when SWAT was called, and officers worked through the night to make contact with the man inside. Police said he never did respond, but did make a phone call to someone around 2 a.m.
It was just before 8 a.m. when the SWAT team made entry into the house and found a man and woman dead in the basement.
The deaths are being investigated as a murder-suicide and officials told 2 NEWS it appears the woman may have been dead before police first arrived at the house.
Weapons were found, but police have not revealed what sort of weapons they are.
Investigators said the man had a prior history of mental illness and drug use.
