Police say a man shot and killed a woman and two children at an apartment complex in Phoenix before getting into a shootout with officers.

Police responded Monday afternoon to a report of gunfire and found a woman dead in the parking lot.

The suspect barricaded himself inside one of the apartment complexes, and after a few hours, began shooting at the officers, ABC 15 Arizona reported.

A six-hour standoff followed as police tried to rescue the two children in the event that they were still alive. In hopes that one or both of the children were alive, police allowed negotiations for the man's surrender to continue for hours, Howard said. Ross fired at the officers, according to police documents, injuring one officer before being arrested. He says the suspect was pronounced dead Sunday night after being taken to a Phoenix hospital. Ross did not appear to be injured. Officers discovered two children inside the unit, ages 11 and 10 months, deceased. Police mentioned that the gunman and the woman used to be in a relationship.

He made comments that he had killed the children and "he made notifications to other family members that he had killed the children", the police spokesman said in the first news conference on the tragedy.

Alexander, who was escorted back to her apartment in the Highland Apartment complex in Phoenix, Arizona after spending nearly over five hours outside in a parking lot, told the Arizona Republic, "I'm terrified of who our neighbors are".

For hours, residents and visitors inside the complex were not allowed to leave and those waiting to return to their homes were not allowed in. "It's as sh-ty as it can get on Christmas Day".

Power was cut to the complex about 7:30 p.m., and residents near the gunman's apartment were escorted out by police SWAT team members.

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