(CNN) — A gunman killed six people overnight at a Florida apartment complex before police shot him dead in a shootout, authorities said early Saturday.

The man barricaded himself in an apartment in Hialeah, a Miami suburb, where he was holding a man and a woman hostage, city police spokesman Sgt. Eddie Rodriguez said.

Hialeah police received a call at 6:30 p.m. of a shooting.

When they arrived at the scene, they found two people dead from gunshot wounds and heard additional shots in the area, Rodriguez said.

After negotiations failed, a SWAT team entered the dwelling, rescued the hostages and killed the gunman, who fired on them, police said.
