Authorities say Ross barricaded himself there while he negotiated with police.

The names of the woman and children haven't been released.

It's unclear if Ross has a lawyer who can speak on his behalf.

Fox 10 was on the scene for the shootout, with officers shutting down the complex and later evacuating residents.

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

Prior to that officers had spent hours trying to talk to the man in hopes that he would release the two children if they were in fact still alive.
