PHOENIX, Arizona -

There was an Oklahoma connection to an ambush in Phoenix, Arizona.

Five police officers were shot and four were injured, after a man from Tulsa opened fire during a domestic situation.

When police arrived at the home, 36-year-old Morris Jones met them at the door, invited them in, and then began to shoot.

Video shows police surround the home.

Later, another man came out of the house with a baby, put the baby in a carrier on the ground, and obeyed officers' orders.

When police tried to move the baby's carrier, they say Jones shot at them again from inside the home.

Officers later found Jones and a woman dead inside the home.

"I don't think it's an overstatement to call what these officers did 'heroic.' They knew that an officer had just been shot in this very doorway, and four officers were willing to run in to that doorway to try to save this child. I think that's incredible," Sgt. Andy Williams, Phoenix PD said.

The baby wasn't hurt.
