Suspects in custody after standoff

Posted: Updated:

Police say two suspects are in custody after shots were fired in an East Valley neighborhood on the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Nation.

Officers responded to the scene at about 2:30am Sunday morning, on Montecito near Alma School & Indian School Roads.  Police saw the flash of gunfire from the muzzle of gun, but did not return fire and called for backup. 

Officers established a perimeter to secure the area.  At around 7am a Phoenix Police robot was sent in, and two suspects hiding in the area were eventually taken into custody.

Officers with Scottsdale Police, Mesa Police, AZ DPS and the FBI have been assisting with the incident.
