Man arrested in Phoenix killings of estranged wife and 2 kids

A woman and her two children are dead and a police officer injured after a Christmas day shooting in Arizona.

Late Monday, after it became clear both children were also dead, police used an explosion to distract the gunman as they entered the apartment, officials said.

At around 7:30pm they also shut off power before going into the apartment while fending off gunfire from the suspect. The gunman then reportedly barricaded himself inside the apartment with two children - a 10-month-old baby and an 11-year-old child while the police tried to negotiate with him.

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. Several hours later, he indicated he had killed the two children and began shooting at officers, authorities said.
