Man arrested in Phoenix killings of estranged wife, 2 kids

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

Sgt. Jonathan Howard says officers found the body of a 38-year-old woman in the parking lot and discovered that the 45-year-old man had gone to the apartment where he used to live.

A man shot and killed a woman and two children at a Phoenix apartment complex before getting into a shootout with officers, authorities said. The two children, aged 10 and 11, were also found dead in the apartment.

During negotiations, he told them he had killed the 10-month-old girl and 11-year-old boy but later claimed they were still alive. One officer was injured by shrapnel and taken to the hospital in stable condition.

No identities or motive have been released. The man began firing shots and tactical officers entered the apartment as the gunfire rang out.

One police officer, a 46-year-old man with 23 years of service, fired several rounds into a door jamb to distract Ross. The suspect was not injured and was eventually taken into custody. Although some news media reports say the adult woman was the estranged wife of the suspect, the police spokesman was not clear on the exact relationship.

The tragedy led to a standoff at the apartment building where the carnage occurred. Tall palm trees stand at the entrance of the complex, which has three-story units.

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

Officers said Tuesday that 45-year-old Anthony Ross has been arrested in the Christmas Day shootings.

Anthony Milan Ross, 45, admitted he went through his ex-wife's trousers pockets to move her vehicle so he could leave his home near 16th Street and Highland Avenue after she was shot.

Residents were escorted back to their apartments by officers a half-hour after the shootout had ended.

As the standoff passed the five-hour mark, about a half-dozen residents clustered outside the QuikTrip across the street.

Kristen Alexander, 26, had been sitting in a parking lot since 4:15 p.m. after arriving home from a trip to Ohio.

Police said that the suspect and woman who was killed were the children of the suspect and the victim.
