The man suspected of fatally shooting his former wife and two children in Phoenix on Christmas is a vegan chef and motivational speaker.
Anthony Milan Ross, 45, was taken into custody shortly after 10 p.m. Monday after exchanging gunfire with officers following a six-hour standoff, a Phoenix police spokesman said Tuesday.
Fans of Ross on social media have been shocked by the news.
Many commented on a Facebook video posted on Christmas Eve of Ross singing with his 11-year-old son, Nigel, whom police found the next day shot in a Phoenix apartment, along with his 10-month-old sister, Anora.
Ross lost a large amount of weight when he was in his 20s, which he has attributed to his vegan lifestyle. He spoke about it in a feature-length documentary that also included celebrities James Cameron and Samuel L. Jackson.
His estranged wife, Iris Ross, 38, was shot Monday shortly before officers were called to Highland Apartments at Highland Avenue and 16th Street at 3:45 p.m., police said. Her body was found lying in a patio area at the complex, police said, and an hours-long standoff with the man inside ensued.
One officer who was injured after a police tactical squad entered the apartment was reported in stable condition. Ross was uninjured.
Ross is commonly known by his middle name, which he uses for his business ventures, which include vegan cooking and writing.
In Ross’ initial court appearance Tuesday, he was ordered held without bond at a Maricopa County jail. He is held on three counts of first-degree murder, two counts of aggravated assault, 19 counts of aggravated assault on an officer and one county of discharging a firearm within city limits.
According to a court document, witnesses told police officers that they saw Ross shoot a woman who was running away from him. After that, they said, he returned to an apartment and they heard two to three more gunshots from inside the home. Soon after, he was back outside, going through through Iris Ross’ pants pockets, witnesses said. They asked Anthony Ross if she was OK, and he responded by pointing his handgun at them and telling them “no,” according to the court document.
Iris and Anthony Ross were divorced earlier this year.
Howard said Anthony Ross initially told police negotiators he had killed the children. However, police negotiated with him for hours in hopes that one or both of the children were alive, Howard said. During the negotiations, Ross changed his story, saying they were alive and threatened to kill them, according to officials.
Shortly after 10 p.m., a police Special Assignments Unit deployed a robot into the apartment, and it became evident to officers that the younger child, Anora, was dead in one of the rooms.
Police entered the apartment after discovering her, and Ross opened fire, according to court documents. Officers discovered Nigel’s body in a different room.
Howard said police do not yet know the motive for the killings.
A 46-year-old male officer with 23 years of service was injured by shrapnel and taken to a hospital in stable condition, police said.
Lauren Witzke: Among Several Children on Hunter Biden Laptop, Including Chris Coon’s Daughter
Well, folks. The dam is finally breaking on what is exactly going on with the Hunter Biden laptop scandal that the corporate media has refused to cover, simultaneously big tech is clamping down attempts to use their platform to share the story.

There are other allegations going around possible connections to foreign children being on the Hunter Biden laptop as well as several children of other politicians including one of Barack Obama’s daughter.
This only further proves Joe Biden and his entire family, and Chris Coons, are completely compromised by foreign entities and domestic deep state actors within our Government. They hold no allegiance to anything but what their masters tell them to do, because at the end of the day they are at the whims of others leaking this information and publicly destroying them and their career.
We can only imagine more damning allegations are coming to break now that we have a first look at just how explosive the “Laptop From Hell”, as President Donald Trump puts it, really is.
Pitiful GOP Governor Larry Hogan Attempts to Sabotage Pro-Trump Republican Kimberly Klacik’s Election on April 28th
Baltimore, MD – Weeks ago, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan issued an Executive order requiring mail-in voting for the special election to fill Congressman Elijah Cummings vacant U.S. House seat on April 28th. As if voting by mail isn’t already a potential disaster for fraud waiting to happen, Larry Hogan essentially guaranteed fraud will happen to a rather large scale with this order, as pro-Trump candidate Kimberly Klacik explains in this tweet.
-0:51:00 proves the @md_sbe did not make an independent decision, District 7’s change was ordered.
Voter fraud & voter suppression will be a direct result of @GovLarryHogan going back on his executive order while trying to keep his hands clean. Pls investigate @AGWilliamBarr https://t.co/OaEat3cWXD

Over 7,000 votes were already mailed in yesterday, when Governor Hogan modified his order to allow one polling station in each of District 7’s counties, which will allow people to vote twice. Historically, voter fraud is not favorable to Republican candidates. In the following Board of Elections meeting, the board members mention several times that this change was by Governor Hogan’s order, essentially making their vote a mere formality.
Larry Hogan, although a Republican, is wildly popular in the predominantly liberal state of Maryland, touting a 70% approval rating. Maryland Liberals naturally love Larry’s consistent criticism of President Donald Trump. He was a vocal critic when the President told “The Squad” that if they don’t like America, they can go back. In early March, Governor Hogan stated that he was not satisfied with President Trump’s communication regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. More recently he stated that he is still not satisfied with the administration’s response. Other Governors, including Democratic ones have publicly praised Trump’s administration, including Governor Gavin Newsome of California.
What could be motivating the Governor to sabotage this race in favor of a Democrat? It could be that he just hates the President that much, and any candidate willing to support him is no friend of his. What is intriguing about this, is that last summer it was Kimberly Klacik who tweeted about rats in Baltimore City, which prompted President Trump to tweet about the disgusting state of Baltimore. Despite the truthfulness of those tweets, Larry Hogan called them “Outrageous and inappropriate.” Elijah Cummings has since passed away, leaving his U.S. House seat vacant. Kimberly Klacik is running for that vacant seat.
Many observers outside the state of Maryland would describe Larry Hogan as RINO, a Republican in name only. The truth is he is the typical pre-Trump Republican that cares mostly about corporate profit, low taxes, and GDP with little regard to putting Americans First. Despite all of his anti Trump whining, that didn’t stop him from begging for more H1B visa allotments for crab pickers.
Other Democrats across the country have also been promoting the vote by mail fraud scheme, including Delaware Senator Chris Coons and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren.
When asked for further comment, Kimberly Klacik stated that she is, “pursuing legal action.”
Twitter Profile With No Tweets Or Followers Suspended
New England – A Twitter page for a group called New England Identitarians was temporarily suspended evidently for using the word “Identitarian”. The page had zero followers at the time, and was yet to even make a tweet. In fact, the page was set to private.
Regardless of what you might think of “Identitarian” ideology, most people can agree that the word itself shouldn’t trigger a ban from the public square, which is what social media companies such as Facebook and Twitter are functioning as. The First Amendment was intended to protect the public from government censorship, but in the current day the main medium for public discourse is social media. Practically speaking, there is no difference. It must be lawfully determined if these companies are neutral platforms, or if they function as publishers with editorial judgement.
The same goes for the popular video platform YouTube as well. Formerly known as a free speech medium, it’s now only friendly for what are deemed acceptable opinions. Across all of these sites, “hate speech” is broadly used as an excuse to censor political views that the company doesn’t like, with a strong partisan bias against conservatives. Other free speech friendly social media networks to try are Telegram, Gab, and Parlor. An up-and-coming alternative to YouTube is BitChute. For livestreaming, there’s D’Live. Perhaps it’s time that we all begin to migrate away from the tyrannical mainstream sites.
