Officers found two children, ages 11 and 10 months, deceased inside the unit. Phoenix police had not yet released the identity of the woman or the children at midday.

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

Woman shot in the head in Christmas Day shooting in South Richmond.

At around 7:30pm they also shut off power before going into the apartment while fending off gunfire from the suspect.

One police officer, a 46-year-old man with 23 years of service, fired several rounds into a door jamb to distract Ross. 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 suspect barricaded himself inside one of the apartment complexes, and after a few hours, began shooting at the officers, ABC 15 Arizona reported.

Police said they made contact with the gunman inside an apartment and that is when they discovered that two children were believed to be inside with him.

An officer who was injured as police entered the apartment was taken to a nearby hospital and is in stable condition. After several hours, he started shooting at police, ABC15 reported.

Residents told The Republic that the shooting occurred in the northeast quadrant of the complex, and that the probable shooter lived in a three-story unit.

"It's beyond insane", added resident Gibson Daoud told the Arizona Republic.

Residents of the upscale apartment complex near the Biltmore area were not allowed to leave and others were not able to return to their homes there.

After the Christmas Day horror, the suspect was accused of telling both police and family members that he had "killed the children".

"I'm terrified of who our neighbors are", resident Kristen Alexander said.
