A series of attacks Sunday afternoon in Arizona have ended with five people shot, including one fatality, and two or three children missing, Tucson police said. 

The gunman who is a suspect in the attacks was critically wounded by a police officer.

A 35-year-old man is accused of opening fire on an ambulance crew around 3:45pm Sunday in Quincy Douglas Park, Tucson police Chief Chris Magnus said.

The driver of the ambulance, a 20-year-old man, was shot in the head, and a paramedic in the passengers seat, a 21-year-old woman, was shot in the chest and arm. The man is in a critical condition and the woman is stable.

Then, the suspect is accused of driving up to the scene of a nearby house fire and shooting at firefighters and neighbors trying to douse the flames, the chief said. 

One 44-year-old neighbor was shot in the head and died. A firefighter was shot in the arm, and another bullet grazed another neighbor’s head.

A ‘badly burned’ body was also found inside the home that was on fire, and ‘two or three’ children who lived there are missing, Magnus said to KVOA.

Officials are working to determine the location of the children.

A police officer responding to the scene encountered the suspect a couple blocks away, the chief said. 

Police said the suspect rammed his SUV into the officer’s vehicle and opened fire.

 The officer returned fire and shot the suspect, critically wounding him, the chief said. The officer was not injured.

‘This is a highly tragic, really horrific incident, with many unknowns,’ Magnus said.

The investigation was ongoing. It was unclear what prompted the attacks.   

Police found the unidentified remains of a victim inside the home, while between 'two and three' children that live at the house are still missing
