Police tried to talk to Anthony Ross, 45, who barricaded himself inside the unit where he used to live, Sgt. Jonathan Howard said. The suspect was not injured and was eventually taken into custody.
Police responded Monday afternoon to a report of gunfire and found a woman dead in the parking lot.
Ross, who was visiting Phoenix for the holidays, was not hurt, Howard said.
The shooting occurred at an upscale apartment complex near the Biltmore area.
Police said they made contact with the gunman inside an apartment and that is when they discovered that two children were believed to be inside with him. The two children, aged 10 and 11, were also found dead in the apartment. The suspect is 45-years-old, and he's still alive after the Christmas massacre. The police tracked the suspect down into one of the apartments.
Several hours later, Howard says the man began shooting at officers.
"I can't believe it's Christmas and there's a shooting or whatever's going on".

After the Christmas Day horror, the suspect was accused of telling both police and family members that he had "killed the children".
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.
The police said they were speaking to the suspect for several hours. Some wondered whether they should check into a hotel for the night; others wondered about their dogs left locked inside their apartments.
The situation was said to have resolved around 11 p.m. EST.
