The Fire department is asking the public for help. "I don't want to come back to a home that caught on fire", Fuentes said. No injuries were associated with the fire but one person did get transported to the hospital for medical reasons.

One officer was also injured in the shootout, and has been taken to the hospital in stable condition, police say.

Residents of the upscale apartment complex near the Biltmore area were not allowed to leave and others were not able to return to their homes there. 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 eerie. I feel bad for whoever is going through this", Kristen Alexander told CBS News affiliate KPHO-TV. It remains unclear as to whether or not Ross has a lawyer who could speak on his behalf.
