EDGEWATER, Fla. (AP) — Three people were killed in a shooting and hostage-taking at a Narcotics Anonymous rally in Florida, police said.

Police responded to reports that a man was shot and a woman was taken hostage in Edgewater near Daytona Beach Monday night. Others have been able to escape the offices of Be The Bridge, a nonprofit that helps homeless and others get a fresh start in life. In a Facebook post, Edgewater Police said investigators believed it appeared to be related to a domestic dispute.

A SWAT team entered the building and opened fire. Officers attempted to contact and negotiate with the suspect before finding him and two others dead inside, the post said. Additional details were not immediately available.
