Trump's Christmas message to the troops: 'We're winning'
Trump told a caller from MS that the state is "great" and predicted that "Santa is going to treat you very well". At one point, the president thanked sailors aboard the USS Sampson for setting a "new standard" for readiness.

After a brief exchange of gunfire, police were able to secure the area and take the suspect into custody.

Howard says police then found the bodies of a 10-month-old and an 11-year-old inside the apartment. Police were investigating the shooting that they described as a domestic violence incident. Then, officers tracked the suspect to a specific apartment.

The names of the suspect, victims and the injured officer have not yet been released by the authorities. During the standoff and until the issue had been resolved, numerous people waited in parked cars across the street near the apartment complex for several hours.

"It's beyond insane", added resident Gibson Daoud told the Arizona Republic. "It's eerie. I feel bad for whoever is going through this", said neighbor Kristen Alexander, reported AZFamily.com.
