Police say five people, including a shooting suspect and child, have died in a family shooting in Phoenix on Tuesday morning, reports KSAZ.
The Phoenix Police Department tells Fox 10 that the shooting happened near 51st Avenue and Cactus, and at some point the home was set on fire.
Police have confirmed that the suspect and four others, including a 6-year-old girl, were killed in the shooting. The girl, who was transported to a hospital with life-threatening injuries after the shooting, died shortly thereafter.
Sgt. Trent Crump said that dispatchers received calls from the victims inside. When they arrived they found the home on fire and heard shots being fired inside. Officers used equipment from the fire department and knocked down some of the fire to help rescue some victims from the home.
Crump said that officers called for a tactical team who later cleared the home and found the other victims and the shooter. He said that the shooter was armed when confronted by police and they opened fire, killing him.
