PD: Children, woman shot and killed in Phoenix apartment

Police said shortly after 10 p.m. officers deployed a robot into the apartment and found the 10-month-old baby dead.

Phoenix police said that the suspect, who has now been taken into custody, got into nearly a seven-hour standoff with police, which led to a police officer being hurt and the gunman also barricaded himself inside the apartment. He wasn't hurt. An officer was injured by shrapnel and hospitalized in stable condition.

Phoenix police have identified the man suspected of killing his estranged wife and their two children. The two children, aged 10 and 11, were also found dead in the apartment.

When the first officer arrived, the 25-year-old suspect, started beating on the officer's vehicle with a knife.

The names of the suspect, victims and the injured officer have not yet been released by the authorities.

The second officer is 31 years old with nine years' experience in law enforcement, police said. Police mentioned that the gunman and the woman used to be in a relationship.

When Are Walmart & Target Open on Christmas Eve and Day 2017?
Christmas is nearly here and if you are keen to pick up a few more supplies before the big day then you don't have much time left. Aldi: This is fairly simple: shops will be open between 10am and 4pm, except in Scotland where they'll open at 8 and shut at 6.

Police spokesman Sgt. Alan Pfohl did not say how many times Murillo was shot.

The shooting occurred at an upscale apartment complex near the Biltmore area.

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

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 [expletive] as it can get on Christmas Day".

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

Eight people and a black Labrador retriever were escorted by officers to their homes in other areas of the complex shortly after 9:30 p.m. "It's eerie. I feel bad for whoever is going through this", Kristen Alexander told CBS News affiliate KPHO-TV.
