  • A man barricaded himself in a Phoenix apartment unit after shooting a woman

When it was determined that they were dead, police entered the apartment and captured the man alive.

It all started around 4 p.m. yesterday when police were called to an apartment complex.

Police tried to talk to Anthony Ross, 45, who barricaded himself inside the unit where he used to live, Sgt. Jonathan Howard said.

Police have identified the victims as Iris Ross, 38, Nigel Ross, 11, and Anora Ross, 10 months. Howard says the unidentified man indicated to them that he had killed two children. Police have not yet declared or explained how the children died.

The Phoenix Police Department responded to reports of a shooting at an upscale apartment complex just before 4pm on Monday, arriving to find a woman dead in the parking lot.

One officer injured in the shootout was rushed to the hospital and in stable condition, officials told the station. Several officers returned fire at the suspect during the standoff. Police say this appears to be a domestic dispute turned deadly.

Officers then made their way into the apartment and discovered the two children, who were also murdered by the suspect.

"I can't believe it's Christmas and there's a shooting or whatever's going on. It's eerie. I feel bad for whoever is going through this", said neighbor Kristen Alexander, reported AZFamily.com.

"It's beyond insane", resident Gibson Daoud said.
