Three men and two women were found dead by investigators.
The officials said that the family had dispute related to their business that has ended up in death of the family members.
The Phoenix police identified the gunman as a 50 year old Driss Diaddinn, and the victims are identified as 56 years old Dodi Faed, 38 years old Reda Diaeddinn, 76 years old Kenza Benzakour, 26 years old Meriem Ben Yahia.
The police have investigated the witnesses who lived in the neighborhood and two women who escape the scene; one of them escaped from home and the other women was hiding herself in the bathroom.
Diaeddinn shot his mother, two brothers and one of his brother’s wives.
Diaeddinn’s wife was carrying a 10 month old infant and three year old kid, she escaped from the home’s rare entrance when the gunfire started, and the other women was hiding in the bathroom after one hour long standoff.
The family was operating limousine service along with a restaurant in Phoenix.
The officials said that they have no details about the incidence but the family members had dispute over the business.
One of the family acquaintance said that they had dispute over finances for previous years.
The family keeps its origin in Morocco.
Sgt. Trent Crump said, “It’s very obvious, whether it’s the heat, passion or the anger of what happened, he certainly went to great lengths to make sure each of them were dead.”
He added, “To have to go out the back of a home, taking two kids with you while you’re on the phone with 911 while shots are being fired, it sounds like a very heroic act on her part, to have the other female come out later is pretty miraculous.”
