Two people found dead at house fire near scene of California shooting

SANTA MONICA, California (Reuters) - Two people were found dead at the scene of a California house fire on Friday a short distance from where a gunman opened fire on traffic near a college campus in Santa Monica, but it was not immediately clear if the incidents were related, police said.

Television footage broadcast by a local CNN affiliate from the scene of the fire appeared to show a car outside the home damaged by gunfire. Local television station KNBC, citing a fire department official, reported that a woman was found suffering a gunshot wound in a car outside the burned home.
