Man arrested in Phoenix killings of estranged wife and 2 kids

Officers, according to police, are communicating with the suspect, who is reportedly inside one of the apartments.

Echeverria said Ross told her of relationship problems with her ex-husband, and said that she hopes the shooting prompts women in bad relationships to ask for help. "I didn't know it was this dark".

That's when officers burst into the apartment, exchanging gunfire with the 45-year-old.

A suspect is in custody after police said he shot and killed a woman and their two children before getting into a shootout with police at a central Phoenix apartment complex on Sunday. Officers learned that 10-month-old Anora was dead at around 10 p.m. after they deployed a robot inside the house.

A HAUNTING video shows a loving dad joking and singing with his son on Christmas Eve - shared just hours before he killed his estranged wife and two children.

A status conference is set to be held at Maricopa County Superior Court on the morning of 3 January and a preliminary hearing is scheduled for the morning of 5 January.

Ross, who attacked an officer multiple times, is now being held without bail at Maricopa County jail on three counts of first-degree murder and more than a dozen counts of aggravated assault on an officer.

"Hey guys, I'm smiling and I'm hanging out with Nigel on Christmas Eve", he said in the video, as reported by The Root.

Police did not give a motive for the shooting but said they were investigating it as a domestic violence incident.

On Tuesday night, St. Joseph's Outpatient Surgery Center issued a statement on the incident.

"It may be shrapnel", said Howard. Police also said that two children are possibly inside the apartment. "Iris was a fabulous person with a huge heart and we are honored to have had her as part of our family".

He later told police he looked for her auto keys to move her vehicle, which was parked in front of his, so he could try to get away, according to the document. During negotiations, Ross changed his story and said they were alive and threatened to kill them, police said.

Witnesses told police they heard a number of gunshots from in and around his apartment. Officers discovered two children inside the unit, ages 11 and 10 months, deceased. Ross was not injured as he was taken into custody.

"We're all human and we all suffer the same", Echeverria said.
