Two people were found shot to death — one inside a car and the other in a nearby home — in Swansea on Sunday evening, authorities said. Shortly after 6 p.m., town and State Police surrounded an area of Stephen French Road after receiving a 911 call that gunshots had been fired and someone had been shot, according to a statement from the Bristol district attorney’s office. Police said they found a person inside a car who had been fatally shot. Witnesses said the shooter had fled into a nearby home, the statement said. Soon after, a single gunshot was heard. Inside the home, officers found the body of a male who had died from an apparent gunshot wound to the head, authorities said. No one else was inside the home. No other injuries were reported.
