Mother, 2 children killed in Christmas Day shooting at Phoenix apartment complex

Anthony Ross is accused of shooting and killing his estranged wife and their two children at a Phoenix apartment complex before getting into a Christmas Day shootout with officers

Officers discovered two children inside the unit, ages 11 and 10 months, deceased.

Officers forced their way into the apartment and there was a shootout.

Phoenix police have identified the man suspected of killing his estranged wife and their two children. One officer was injured by shrapnel and taken to the hospital in stable condition.

"I can't believe it's Christmas and there's a shooting or whatever's going on". The identities of the woman and children are being withheld pending family notification. It remains unclear as to whether or not Ross has a lawyer who could speak on his behalf.

The slain woman and the suspect "had these two children in common", Howard said, adding that police were still working to determine the nature of their relationship.

He faces three first-degree murder charges, as well as two counts of aggravated assault for pointing a gun at witnesses to his ex-wife's shooting and 19 counts of aggravated assault on an officer.

"Throughout the negotiations, he made comments that he had killed the children". They found the 11-year-old dead inside the home.

Howard said Tuesday that the suspect wasn't hurt and ultimately surrendered after the gunbattle.

Police were called to the scene Monday afternoon on a report of a shooting and found a woman dead outside.

During the talks, the man indicated he had killed the children and threatened officers, he said.

Phoenix police communicated with the shooting suspect, who barricaded himself inside one of the apartments.

It wasn't immediately clear when the children were killed. After a brief exchange of gunfire, he was taken into custody. The man did not appear to be injured.
