Gunman kills six in shooting rampage

A man living with his mother in a South Florida apartment complex set their home on fire and went on a shooting rampage throughout the building, killing six people before being shot to death by police.

In the final hours of the eight-hour standoff on Saturday, Pedro Vargas, 42, held two people hostage at gunpoint for up to three hours in their apartment until an elite police team entered and killed him, police said. The hostages were not hurt.AP
