MIAMI - Seven people were shot and killed at a Miami-area apartment early Saturday, including the suspected gunman, the Miami Herald said.

The gunman, who was holding two hostages at the time, was killed by a police SWAT team after an eight-hour standoff at the apartment building in the Miami suburb of Hialeah. The standoff began with an argument between the gunman and the husband and wife who ran the building.

Police found the landlords' bodies and the bodies of four other people after they moved in and shot the suspect dead, the newspaper said.
